Lake County Child Support Lawyer

In Florida, financial support is the right of every child and neither parent can waive that right. A set of statutory rules known as the Florida Child Support Guidelines govern the calculation of most child support obligations in the state.

These guidelines contain a mathematical formula for determining child support. This formula is based on several economic principles, including number of minor children in a family, the incomes of both parents, the time sharing allocated to each parent, as well as necessary expenses for child care and insurance coverage.

Fair And Accurate Child Support Calculations

The child support guidelines can be complex, and even the slightest miscalculation could cost you thousands of dollars. It is important to retain the capable assistance of an experienced Lake County child support lawyer.

At Cauthen, Oldham & Associates, P.A., we have more than 40 years of experience with all aspects of child support in Florida, including cases involving temporary support, initial calculation, deviations from the support guidelines, modifications of existing support orders, enforcement of support orders, retroactive payments and litigation.

It is often challenging to calculate the true incomes of parents who own businesses, have substantial investments, or work in seasonal or cash-paying jobs. When appropriate, our firm enlists the assistance of forensic accountants to perform asset tracing and business valuations that help to accurately determine a parent's income — despite what the tax returns might say.
