As married parents, you and your spouse have made providing for your children a top priority. This should not (and does not need to) change simply because you are pursuing a divorce. It does mean, however, that you need experienced legal guidance to accurately determine what your children’s needs are and to advocate for child support obligations that are fair and, whenever possible, advantageous to you.
At Jenkinson Legal we understand that there is no one way to approach a sensitive family dispute, especially when children are involved. We know from experience that a more collaborative, consensus-driven approach can benefit both individual clients and entire families in the long run better than simply taking a spouse for everything he or she is worth. Our value comes in understanding a client’s priorities, identifying the needs of the children and developing the best strategy under the circumstances.
Experienced Attorney In Child Support Disputes
It is helpful to keep in mind that as a general principle, both parents have a legal obligation to provide financially for their children. That said, courts in Florida apply child support guidelines, pursuant to Florida Statute 61.13, to determine which parent will receive child support payments. These guidelines take into account three main factors:
The standard needs of the child(ren)
Child(ren)’s health care and child care costs
Both parents’ income
Where Jenkinson Legal adds value in child support calculations is being able to efficiently gather all of our client’s financial records to provide the court with accurate information in a light most favorable to our client. At the same time, we ensure that the other side has also provided complete and accurate information to avoid an unfair outcome.
