Child Support - Florida Child Support Guidelines

If the amount of child support awarded by a Court deviates from the child support guidelines by more than 5%, the Court must make findings of fact explaining why. "If a trial court awards child support which deviates more than five percent from the guidelines, it must make a written finding explaining why the guidelines amount would be inappropriate or unjust. § 61.3O(1)(a)."
