Child support is mandatory and cannot be waived by the parties except in certain limited circumstances. The calculation of child support is based upon the “net income” of each parent. Net income is gross income less any deductions allowed under the statute. Child support can be paid directly to the receiving party or through the State of Florida. Florida law requires that child support be paid by income deduction order if a party is ever late on child support. The child support amount includes the amounts for health insurance for the minor child/children and any daycare or aftercare amounts.
