Under Florida state law, child support is an ongoing payment made periodically by the parent who makes the higher income to the parent with the lower income. This support pays for the child’s basic needs, such as housing, utilities, food and clothing. This money is intended for the child and is not taxed by the state.
The basic reason for Florida child support is to ensure families remain financially whole after divorce or when parents otherwise end their relationship.
