A: The Florida Statutes set guidelines and a formula to calculate child support. The amount you will pay depends on your income and the income of the other parent. You add both your income and the income of the other parent and go to the table to determine the total amount of child support that must be paid to the child or children. Then, your percentage obligation of that amount is determined depending on how much you make in relationship with the other parent.
