Courts can arrange adoptions in a number of ways, and the family law surrounding adoptions can differ depending on state.

Child support guidelines and resources

Child support, in legal terms, is a topic of family law that determines the payment parents must make for the financial security of a child, usually after a divorce or separation. Florida uses what is called an income shares model, or a system that holds that a child should receive the same level of income that he or she would have received if the two parents lived together.
