Social Security payments possible support option

As the Florida population ages, residents may wonder if child support due from a non-custodial parent can be collected from Social Security payments. The answer depends on what kind of Social Security the other parent is collecting.

Learning more about child support trends

Parents in Florida might want to learn more about some of the trends and principles observed from recent child support data by federal agencies and researchers. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, less than 49 percent of all parents are actually awarded child support. Records show that more than 53 percent of the mothers were awarded child support, while less than 29 percent of the custodial fathers were able to achieve the support.

Representing Florida parents in child support modification cases

Many Florida residents seek quick divorces that will minimize the amount of time they have to spend in court. However, this can be to the detriment of one or both of the parties if a judge issued a child support order. In many cases, the original child support order is insufficient to cover children's needs. In other cases, either children's or parents' needs change, prompting parents to seek either a reduction or increase to the monthly support amount.

Parental relocation when child custody is involved

When there is a written court order granting responsibility, rights or custody of a child, simple things like parental relocation can quickly become legal issues in the state of Florida. Relocation is defined as the parent with primary rights to the child changing their main residence to another location more than 50 miles away for a period of at least 60 consecutive days.
