Procedures to establish Florida child support

Legal responsibility for financially supporting children typically resides with both parents, but a divorce and award of custody in Florida does not automatically establish the means of enforcing this financial obligation on non-custodial parents. Instead, Orlando parents must seek a child support order that states the amount per Florida guidelines. Some requirements are necessary to establish the order, and other actions are suggested to ensure fair child support payments.

Florida businessman arrested for failing to pay child support

It is not uncommon for at least one parent, typically the parent who does not have physical custody of the child, to be ordered by a court to pay child support to the custodial parent. The intent of child support is to ensure that that parent will be able to adequately care for the child from a financial sense. The specifics of what the child support amount will be are generally delineated in a child support order. Nevertheless, despite such court orders, there are some parents who fail to pay child support. The penalty for failing to pay child support could be jail time, suspension of one's driving privileges, restrictions on one's passport and more.
