Miami Child Support Lawyer
Helping You Establish a Child Support Agreement in Florida
Child support is a legal duty of both parents. During divorce, parents are required to settle child support matters and payments. While the Florida Child Support Guidelines provide a statutory formula for the calculation of child support, parents often disagree on what is considered a fair amount for each party. The Miami family law attorneys at Mitchell & West LLC can guide clients through child support disputes and help parents establish fair and reasonable support payments.
Child support is calculated by looking at:
- Income sources of each parent
- Time spent with the child
- Number of children
Parents are required to be honest about their financial situation, including providing full financial disclosure of all income sources. If you believe that there is hidden income involved, our attorneys have access to experts who can assist with identifying undisclosed income. We have extensive resources and experience dealing with complex financial matters in child support cases.
Modifying & Enforcing Child Support
If a parent has relocated or has experienced a change in income, whether an increase or decrease, Mitchell & West LLC can also assist with filing child support modifications. An attorney can advise you on whether your situation warrants a modification.
If a parent is not paying court-ordered support, we can help you take legal action to enforce the payments. We can file a civil contempt action that allows the judge to collect overdue support through liens, wage garnishment, or other remedies. We can also assist with paternity issues.
