Resolving child support issues in Florida

Parents in Florida and elsewhere will move mountains to protect their children, ensuring their needs are met. This begins even before birth and will continue until they are adults. Even if parents are no longer together, this does not change. Through child custody arrangements, divorced parents are able to maintain the emotional and mental stability of their children. And through child support, parents are able to ensure that their financial wellbeing is cared for.

Establishing child support post-divorce can be a vital task to complete for some parents. However, this is not always accomplished that easily. In the state of Florida, like other states across the U.S., a child has the right to receive ongoing financial support from both parents. Nevertheless, requesting child support, enforcing a current order or even modifying current support obligations can be complex.

In Florida, the Department of Revenue is in charge of enforcing child support orders. This agency handles tasks such as issuing child support, locating non-custodial parents, establishing paternity, enforcing child support obligations and collaborating with the courts, law enforcement and other federal and local agencies to resolve child support disputes.

If a parent is awarded child support, there is one of two ways to receive this payment. Either through direct deposit or a pre-paid debit card payment. For those currently paying or receiving child support, if life event occur that require an increase or decrease in payments, modifications will be necessary. If there has been a substantial change in circumstances, it is possible to request child support modification.

Whether you are having trouble establishing an order or modifying a current child support order, it is important to understand your parental rights and options to resolve this matter. This will also help ensure the best interests of the child are met throughout and following this process.
