When is enough, enough? Child support issues involving a wealthy parent


No wonder South Florida has become a place of concentration with the richest people in the world given summer all year round, breathtaking beaches nearby, and no income tax. state revenue. But with all its beauty comes the law of the land and this law includes an obligation for single parents not residing together and divorced parents to pay child support.

Florida Law 61.30 includes a schedule that establishes a rebuttable amount that a court must order in child support based on the parties’ combined monthly net income (guidelines). The higher the combined net monthly income of the parties, the more the child is entitled to child support in accordance with these guidelines. The maximum combined monthly net income for parents contemplated in the guidelines is $ 10,000, but the court must add to the support obligation based on a percentage of any monthly net income over $ 10,000 and the number of children concerned. This additional help is based on the rule that, as a general rule, a child has the right to share the good fortune of his parents in accordance with an appropriate way of life. Once the court has determined the total monthly support to which the child is entitled, the court must then determine each parent’s percentage share of the child support by dividing the monthly net income of each parent by the income. combined monthly net. When one parent earns disproportionately more than the other, even when the parents share the same time, the higher income will likely pay higher child support.
