Florida provides a “formula” that calculates child support guidelines as mandated by statute. Child support is generally paid on a monthly basis or in accordance with the payers pay cycle and is often paid through an Income Withholding Order. If a parent in Orlando, FL does not remain current on child support, an action for contempt and enforcement can be initiated. Often, the party failing to remain current on child support will be responsible for the attorney’s fees of the party seeking enforcement.
If a parent refuses to participate in the discovery process or refuses to turn over accurate financial information, the courts are now empowered to input an average median income. Additionally, the courts have the power to award retroactive child support for up to 2 years. Florida Statute 61.07 states, “The court has discretion to award child support retroactive to the date when the parents did not reside together in the same household with the child, not to exceed a period of 24 months preceding the filing of the petition.”
