88.01. Presumed Child Support Amount
) When determining the correct amount of child support, a court or administrative agency shall consider all relevant factors, including all relevant statutory factors.
) There is a rebuttable presumption that the amount of child support calculated pursuant to
Civil Procedure Form No. 14
is the correct amount of child support to be awarded in any judicial or administrative proceeding. Unless a request is filed pursuant to
a written finding or a specific finding on the record by the court or administrative agency that the child support amount under a correctly calculated Form No. 14, after consideration of all relevant factors, is unjust or inappropriate shall be sufficient in a particular case to rebut the presumption that the amount of child support so calculated is correct.
