Child Support

When going through a divorce, it is important to speak to a Florida Keys Child Support attorney at Robertson & Hunter, LLP so that you have a clear understanding of your financial rights and responsibilities.  Whether you are concerned with paying or receiving support, we can help you understand what to expect.

Alimony (also called spousal support or spousal maintenance) is determined based upon one person’s need and the other person’s ability to pay.  Many factors of the marriage, including length of the marriage, financial needs and the lifestyles of each spouse, will determine if support is necessary, and if so, what kind will be awarded.

Child support is based on a number of factors, including the amount of time the children spend with each parent, the income available to both parties and a formula provided by the Florida Statute. Child support is meant to help either parent cover the costs of insurance, child care and other daily expenses.
