Overview


Child support refers to any financial support regarding the care of child after a dissolution, paternity or an annulment of marriage. Support for a child is given to an obligee, also known as a custodial parent or guardian that is provided by an obligor (a non-custodial parent). The range of expenses for child support are wide and may include, but are not limited to: fees for medical care, school, and extracurricular activities.  


 

UNDERSTANDING:
MODIFICATION OF CHILD SUPPORT

If child support orders need to be modified, files may be sent to the Florida Department of Revenue Child Enforcement Office. It should be noted that child support cannot be declared as un-modifiable; Obligers and obligees have the ability to change child support orders under applicable circumstances.
