Child Support Guidelines §61.29, Fla. Stat. Part 1 of 18| Divorce Attorney Fort Myers/Cape Coral
The purpose of the child support guidelines was to create a minimum standard of support for children of divorce to insure their secure futures. Substantial discretion was removed from the trial court in making individual child support determinations.
Child Support Principles
- 61.29, Fla. Stat., provides for child support guidelines principles. These principles do not affect the actual computation of the child support itself, but provide the following:
- Each parent has a fundamental obligation to support his or her minor or legally dependent child.
- The guideline schedule is based on the parents’ combined net incomes estimated to have been allocated to the child as if parents and children were living in an intact household.
- The guidelines encourage fair and efficient settlement of support issues between parents and minimize the need for litigation.
