What Is The Average Child Support Payment For One Child in Florida?

Florida uses a chart based upon the parties' earnings and the number of children to identify child support payments. Base price for child support for a single child in Florida is $74 where the supporting parent earns a minimum wage/salary of $650. If one parent makes $650 and the other makes $400, the parent that earns $650 pays 60% of the amount and the other parent pays 40% of the amount.

Determining Who Pays How Much in Child Support

Because parents can sometimes disagree about their child support obligations, Florida has extensive calculations in place to determine how much the non-custodial parent is responsible for providing.

Child support calculations generally draw most heavily on the following factors:

  • Each parent’s income
  • The number of children involved
  • Percentage of time each parent spends with the child

Other factors could include the overall expenses of things like childcare, medical care, or schooling.

Enforcing & Modifying Child Support Orders

The state of Florida is quite strict about ensuring that child support payments are being received, as they consider these payments to be the child’s right. Failure to pay support can result in fines for contempt, a suspended license, or even time in county jail. If the non-custodial parent is unable to maintain the ordered child support amount due to a substantial decrease in their income, or if the custodial parent requires greater input due to a substantial increase in the costs of healthcare, childcare, or education, a modification could be made.
