Child Support

The public policy of our state and federal governments mandates that all minor children receive on-going support from their parents on a regular basis.

Adriane M. Isenberg, P.A. represented the State of Florida Dept. of Revenue on behalf of custodians of minor children in thousands of child support cases from 1999-2006.

Ms. Isenberg’s knowledge of child support law is vast, both in the private and public agency arena.

Many people who are subject to either paying or receiving child support are unaware of what specific elements affect the amount of money that will be ordered to support their children. Income earned from salary, over-time and additional jobs; unemployment benefits received; health insurance paid for parents and children, child-care costs, other orders of support for prior or later-born children, IRS deductions taken on tax returns for children; as well as receipt of public assistance or Social Security benefits are all part of the information required to be provided by both parties before child support can be properly calculated. If one parent is a member of a branch of the U.S. military, this can also affect the child support calculation.

Finally, the number of overnight time-sharing that each parent has with the children is critical to the computation of on-going support as well as calculating back support that may be due.

We recognize that custody, visitation, incomes earned and special needs of the parties and children can and do change over time. Ms. Isenberg also represents clients who need to have the court-ordered child support suspended, terminated or modified up or down.
