Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Pensacola Child Support Attorneys

Divorce Attorneys at the Virga Law Firm, P.A.

Our Pensacola child support attorneys will work tirelessly to achieve your child support litigation goals. Florida law recognizes that child support is the right of the child and that both parents have a continuing obligation to financially support their children. Whether you are pursuing child support because you’re going through a divorce, or because you have separated from the other parent, the duty to support your child extends beyond the child’s basic needs and includes other aspects of the child’s life, such as: medical expenses, child care expenses, and education expenses.

The attorneys in our Pensacola office know parents do not always see eye to eye when it comes to child support. More often than not, litigation arises after a parent’s unwillingness to pay his or her appropriate share of the child's expenses. Child support calculation is governed by a Florida statute and our child support attorneys will work closely with you to examine the relevant factors applying to your case.

These tend to include: determining the accurate income of the parties, the amount of time sharing truly exercised by both parents, and the costs of the child's daycare and health insurance. Once these cost and income figures have been accurately determined, then our child support attorneys can meticulously calculate the child support obligation of the parents based on the Florida child support guidelines’ statute.

Our Pensacola child support attorneys are prepared to zealously represent you through the calculation process. Our firm has extensive experience in calculating child support. If you, or a loved one are in need of an Pensacola child support attorney, call us today at (800) 822-5170.
