To modify child support in Florida, you must file a petition with the court. The petition must state the changes that you are requesting, such as an increase or decrease in the amount of child support. You must also provide evidence to support your request.
The court will consider a number of factors in deciding whether to modify child support, including:
- The income of both parents
- The needs of the child
- Any changes in the child’s circumstances
- Any changes in the parents’ circumstances
If the court finds that there has been a substantial change in circumstances, it may modify child support. The court may also modify child support if it finds that the original order was inequitable.
If you are considering modifying child support, you should consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options.
