When a couple has a child together, they are legally bound to support that child until he or she reaches the age of majority. The amount of child support to be paid is determined by a formula based on the parties' combined incomes and is shared between the parties based on their income relative to each other. Neither party can waive the support of a minor child, and if a party does not pay child support they may face a suspension of their driver's license and possibly jail. There have been recent changes to the child support statute which substantially effect the outcome of many cases. Call us at (904) 829-3035 to discuss your case.
