Can child support continue after a child turns 18?

Many parents are able to use Florida's child support guidelines and reach an agreement about support payments without having to ask a court to intervene. In other cases, however, court intervention is necessary.

On what grounds can a child support order be modified?

Modifying a divorce order -- whether it deals with spousal support, child custody or child support -- tends to be a complicated matter. For child support, Florida has a legal formula that we call the child support guidelines. The guidelines account for these factors:

The need for civility concerning child support situations

An article tells the unsettling story of a so-called "deadbeat parent" that apparently fled to Florida and many other locations to get out of his paying his child support obligations. Eventually, this father ended up in jail and his picture was plastered all over the social media pages announcing that he had been in arrears in paying his child support since 2002.

Child support payments and parent resentment

Will forcing a parent to pay child support obligations then cause resentment towards the children? This is a question that was brought up in a newspaper column by a mother after having various discussions with her former husband.

Factors to be considered in child support decisions

Child support guidelines were created to provide direction to courts, but such guidelines were also designed to provide courts discretion in looking at the individual circumstances of each child's case. Florida's guidelines only differ from every other state in the particulars.
