Communicating about child support may help parents

Money can be a touchy subject for many Florida residents. It is a common reason that married couples fight, and even after individuals get divorced, financial obligations like child support can keep them tied. In some cases, making support payments can seem frustrating, but it is often a necessary obligation.

When making support payments, it is typically helpful to maintain open communication with the other parent. It is not always easy, but if there is a change in circumstances regarding one parent's finances, it is likely that the other parent will find out one way or another. For instance, if the paying parent gets a raise, it could mean that support payments could increase. If a parent tries to hide this information to avoid an increase in the payment amount, he or she could end up having to pay back support when the information does come to light.

It can also help to discuss certain child-related expenses ahead of time. One parent may plan on taking the children on vacation and hope that the other parent will help pay for the children's part of the expenses. However, rather than just assuming the parent will pay, it may be best to give that parent the chance to decline, especially if it may cause a hardship.

Staying on top of child support and any subsequent issues is not always easy. Still, it is an obligation that Florida parents must ensure they address correctly. If problems with support-related matters come about, concerned parties may want to discuss the issues with their legal counsel.
