Frequently Asked Questions

1. What determines whether I will get child support?

The Florida Child Support Guidelines are used to calculate which parent will pay child support based upon net incomes of both parties and the specific time-sharing schedule.

2. Can I request child support even if I do not meet the six-month residency requirement for a divorce in Florida?

Yes.  Even if you have not met the requirements to get a divorce in Florida, you have a right to seek support for your children.  Call our office or visit the Department of Revenue Child Support Office website at http.dor.myflorida.com to apply for services online or to find a local office that can assist you in applying for child support.  You can also call (800) 622-KIDS (5437) to speak with a representative with the Department of Revenue.

3.  Can I get temporary support while the divorce is still going on?

A judge has authority to enter a temporary order for time sharing and child support.  This order ordinarily remains in place until a final parenting plan and child support order is entered.
