Child support has many elements

Ending a marriage means making many decisions. In some cases, parents may be able to make some decisions for themselves, and in other instances, the court may have to step in to nail down certain details. For example, it is common for the court to issue child support orders when parents divorce.

Some Florida parents may not know much about paying support other than it is necessary and can depend on the child custody order. Typically, if one parent has physical custody of the children, the non-custodial parent will make support payments to that parent. However, child support may also be necessary in joint custody arrangements with each parent paying a certain amount. Of course, the outcomes depend on the specific circumstances of each case.

Support can also become tricky if a parent cannot pay or refuses to pay. In some cases, if a parent falls on tough financial times, seeking a court order to lower the support payments may suit the situation. If a parent simply refuses to pay, the custodial parent may need to go to court in efforts to collect on delinquent payments.

Child support should be used just as the name suggests: to support the child. Still, it can be difficult to come to support terms, and some Florida parents may not feel comfortable with the amount ordered by the court. If concerns do arise over this particular family law issue, individuals may wish to reach out to their legal support to discuss the matter and determine possible courses of action.
