Dominick Salfi Is a Former Florida Judge
Under Florida state law, child custody obligations are determined by a formula that takes into account the income and of both parents, as well as factors such as the amount of time a parent spends with a child and any special needs a child may have. In Florida, child custody is legally referred to as parental time sharing. We help our clients explore the unique needs of their children, and make sure that those needs are accounted for in the final amount of child support the court may award in any legal proceeding.
Some Children's Needs Don't Fit Neatly Into the Child Support Formula
We are the Florida family law attorneys of Salfi & Sprysenski, P.A., in Altamonte Springs. We have extensive experience making sure the Florida child support calculation includes every financial factor that will impact the final determination of support. We look beyond income on the pay stub and credit card bills and fight aggressively to determine whether a case can be made for special needs and considerations.
In Florida, child support payments are typically made through the county in which your divorce or child support determination was entered. The county is responsible for collections and enforcing timely payments, but the backlog of cases often means that enforcement may take a long time. We provide services to work directly with the obligee to help bring payments up to date in a timely manner.
The courts recognize that the loss of a job, an illness or the child's special needs may mean that child support judgments may need to be modified. We will work out a modified support order that the courts will find acceptable to protect the child's interests.
