While child support should not be a complicated issue since there are income based guidelines the courts are required to follow under Florida law, the challenge becomes when one party does not accurately disclose his or her income. The failure to properly disclose income throws off the calculation and can lead to unfavorable results to one parent as well as be damaging to the child. While the calculation is easier when both parties are wage earners receiving a regular paycheck, the calculation becomes more difficult when a party is self-employed or receives commission based compensation.
