Question: Is there a minimum child support amount in Florida?
Not really. The Florida Statutes do not contain a provision that calls for a minimum child support amount.
However, this does not allow someone to avoid paying child support by not working or working at a job that pays far less than they could be earning. The court will impute an amount of income to someone who is not working if the judge thinks that a parent is voluntarily limiting their income.
Often, in this situation, minimum wage is imputed, but a different amount can be imputed if there is evidence that the parent could earn more based on their education, experience, and earning history.
