Child Support For Special Needs Children
The financial resources needed to support a special needs child can be much higher than those provided for by the Florida child support guidelines. Under the law, the custodial parents of special needs children are able to seek child support above the limits set by state guidelines. The process of obtaining the higher child support order can be quite complex, however, so the assistance of an experienced lawyer can be invaluable in these matters.

Our Pensacola attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of the law in these matters, and we are committed to helping you obtain a child support order that fully accommodates your child’s needs.

Committed To Protecting Your Child’s Future
One of the most important aspects of a child support case involving a special needs child is accurately determining the type of care the child will require over the short and long term. We work closely with medical specialists, life-planning experts and others who can help us build the most compelling possible case on your child’s behalf.
We work to ensure that the child support order considers all of the child’s potential needs, including the following:
- Educational needs
