Re: Child Custody & Support

Short answer is no. Child support can be modified based on the amount of time the each spouse has actual custody of the children. However support can only be modified by a court order. You should consult with a Florida attorney who practices family law to enforce the child support order. If you need assistance e-mail joe@yourjacksonvillelawyer.com.

Re: Child Custody & Support

No. You must have been in Court for the divorce and the matter of child support came up along with the shared custody issue. Both he and you must follow the order, which are not set out in this question.

Before anyone stops anything, they better have the judge OK it and just do it. If it happens, go back to Court!
