Going from a dual income household to a single income is incredibly difficult and overwhelming. When children are involved that stress and anxiety grows exponentially. Being a parent is hard enough, you should not have to worry how you’ll care for the children financially.
Even if you and your ex-spouse have decided an uncontested divorce is the best option for you, we strongly advice consulting with a lawyer first, especially as it relates to the child support. Child support will be outlined in the parenting plan you and your ex-spouse agree to.
As you begin to develop your parenting plan, remember these considerations when it comes to child support:
- Age of the children
- Amount of time with each parent
- Medical costs
- Daycare costs
- Special Needs
Once the court has issued the parenting plan, child support payments can be modified if there is a justified reason, such as a substantial change in cost of health insurance, job loss, illness, decrease or increase in expenses, or additional income.
Remember, you don’t need to create your parenting plan alone. Trust the experienced team of attorneys at Florida Women’s Law Group. We are committed to providing you a positive experience all while seamlessly handling the meticulous details.
