Family Attorney Tampa – Gary Dolgin explains the new child support laws in Florida, effective July 1, 2023 regarding adult dependent children.
“Hi, I’m Gary Dolgin, Board Certified Expert in Marital and Family Law, serving the Tampa Bay community since 1993.
There were a lot of laws that changed this year in Florida.
One of the laws that changed has to deal with supporting children past the age of 18.
Ordinarily, parents are only required to pay child support until their children reach the age of majority.
However, if you have a child who has a physical or a mental incapacity in which they will not be able to take care of themselves after the age of 18, you should request a court to find them to be a dependent child before they reach the age of 18.
Child support is no longer determined by child support guidelines for adult dependent children, but is based on their needs and their parents’ financial resources and ability to pay.”
With over 33 years of experience in all aspects of divorce and family law, being a Board Certified Expert in Marital and Family Law by the Florida Bar, and being a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator, Gary Dolgin has the expertise you need when facing divorce or any type of family law issue.
