Do My Expenses Matter with Child Support?

One of the main questions people ask about child support is, do my expenses matter? Does it matter the clothes I buy for my child or the cost of the shoes for the child? What about haircuts? And we have to explain to them that child support is an income-based formula, not an expense-based formula. One of the other questions they ask is, what about if I’m, if I’m unemployed, do I have to get a job today? And we explore areas of employment, when’s the last time they worked, why are they not working, are they working, are they self-employed, or are they an employee? So tying in with income comes employment. And the third most important question is, well I know in some states child support continues until the age of 21, what’s the law in the state of Florida?
