The amount of child support that the non-custodial parent pays to the custodial parent is determined by the Florida Child Support Guidelines. There is a formula that is used to calculate the amount of child support to be paid by both the parents. A child has the right to be supported by both parents. It is important that the proper numbers are input so that the correct child support is obtained.
When calculating the proper child support amounts there are a number of factors to consider that affects the child support that is actually ordered by the court. Some of those issues are: the amount of overnights that each parent has the child; The financial needs of the child such as day care expenses, medical / dental insurance, uninsured medical payments, the income of both parents.

The issues of child support and child visitation are two separate and distinct matters. If the non-custodial parent is not paying his/her child support as Ordered, the custodial parent must continue to allow the non-custodial parent his/her child visitation rights. On the other hand, if the custodial parent is not allowing the visitation that is Ordered in a particular case the non-custodial parent must continue to pay child support. It is the child’s right to be supported and the actions or inaction of one or both parents should not affect that right.
