    Child support and why you need an attorney.

    Child support is an important topic and requires discussion as well as a Orlando, Florida area Child Support Attorney to help guide you through the process.  It is important for each parent to remember that child support is the right of the child.  A lot of times a parent does not want to pay child support and makes comments about the other parent using it to pay their rent, car payment, or some other personal bill.  Therefore, they do not want to pay support.  Sometimes a parent wants to buy food, diapers, clothes or some other item that the child may need instead of paying child support.  You will also hear a parenting wanting an accounting of how the parent spends the child support payments.  These thoughts are simply incorrect.

    A parent is under no obligation to give you an accounting of how the child support is spent.  Child support is based on a guideline worksheet that is calculated pursuant to both parties income and expenses related to the child such as day care and health insurance costs.  In addition, the number of overnights each parent has is factored into the equation once a minimum of 20 percent overnights comes into play. That information than provides a number that is each parents monthly child support obligation. That number varies from person to person and case to case.  Most people need help completing this form and child support cases.  Seek an attorney such as Michael Ferrin and/or Victoria Anderson, of Anderson & Ferrin, Attorneys at Law, P.A. to help you with your child support matters.
