What Information Do I Need To Calculate Child Support?
- The number of children being considered for child support.
- The net monthly income for each Parent.
- Childcare costs paid by each parent (usually just your “daycare” amount, after school care and babysitting, if necessary on account of employment, job search or education calculated to result in employment or to enhance income or current employment.
- Health Insurance payments made by each parent.
- Dental/Vision insurance paid by each parent.
- Other support obligations, if any, of each parent.
This is the same requirement throughout the entire state of Florida. Parents in Orlando, Fort Launderdale, Naples, and Jacksonville will all be required the submit the same paperwork, and expected to pay the same amount of child support.

Use any calculator, including ours, at your own peril. If you are getting divorced and have children, you should hire a competent lawyer (there are some of us around), to make sure the work and calculations get done properly. Trying to navigate the maze of Florida divorce court on your own is not fun and a big mistake.
Simple –it is foolish not to. Look, there are many very technical issues that must be addressed in every divorce and more when there are children involved. The Florida divorce courts do not really care about the parties, lawyers, their property or debt. Rather, the Florida divorce court is most concerned with children and will make very sure that all the “I’s have been dotted and “T’s” crossed. If not, when you get to the final hearing all excited to get divorced, the Florida divorce judge will send you home and you will need to fix whatever errors/omissions/problems the judge talked to you about.
