Florida Child Support software requires overnight totals

Florida Child Support software requires an overnight total for the non-custodial parent in order to figure out child support, based on the guidelines set by the state of Florida.

Parenting time is the total overnight time each parent spends with their children. To figure out a correct overnight total for Florida, you must calculate the amount of time the non-residential parent spends with the children. When clients set up a visitation schedule, it becomes very difficult to calculate a precise total.

The overnight total is combined with data on each parent's income for a parenting time credit. In Florida, a parenting time credit applies to only joint physical custody cases. Sole custody cases do not qualify for any kind of child support credit based on overnights. Florida Child Support lets you enter an overnight total in order to calculate accurate child support.

Custody X Change calculates parenting time totals

Custody X Change software includes a parenting time calculator that shows exactly how much time each parent has with the children. It can provide this data as total number of hours, days or as a percentage of time annually.

When users set up a parenting time schedule, the software automatically counts up all the overnights for each parent. This accurate overnight total really helps you use Florida Child Support software.

Use Custody X Change to get accurate overnight totals, because:

  • Overnight totals are difficult to figure out by hand, because attorneys must add all the time up within a year for the non-residential parent.
  • Figuring overnight totals adjust every time an attorney changes the schedule.
  • Calculating and re-calculating any change to the schedule is so complex, some attorneys are forced to estimate or guess.
  • Entering overnight totals calculated from a guess or estimate into the Florida child support formula means that child support amounts will likely be wrong.

Figuring out child support amounts requires exact numbers, from each parent's income to the amount of credits allowed. One of the most important numbers is the overnight total, or how long each parent is scheduled to be with the children. Correct numbers mean the child support amount is fair and accurate, and Custody X Change delivers accurate totals every time.
