In Florida, courts are of the opinion that the responsibility of providing Child Support arises from biological parenting responsibilities or by an assumed contractual responsibility. You may ask what is an assumed contractual responsibility? Simply stated: it is a responsibility assumed by a non-biological father/mother and/or a non-adoptive father/mother that has raised the child as “his/her own biological child.” In Florida, Child Support is driven by statutory guidelines. The guidelines provide a mathematical formula based on many factors regarding both parties. Here at Rosario Legal we provided guidance in the establishment of Child Support, as well as the enforcement or modification of Child Support.
