Modifying Child Support in Florida

Help from Our Jacksonville Family Lawyers

Circumstances in everyone's lives can change suddenly and unexpectedly. Sudden unemployment, unanticipated medical emergencies, bankruptcy or domestic violence can justify a modification of a divorce decree. Dramatic changes in income, health or behavior can all be a reason to petition the court to modify a child support ruling.

In most circumstances, individuals petitioning for modification of child support payments will have to show proof of things like:

  • Salary or wages
  • Bonuses
  • Disability benefits
  • Workers' compensation
  • Pension
  • Income from royalties or trusts
  • Social Security benefits

However, according to Florida Statutes § 61.30(c), if the amount of child support award differs by at least 10 percent but not less than $25, then the modification order will be approved without proof of a change in circumstances. To learn more about qualifying for a modification, please consult a divorce lawyer from our firm.

If you wish to modify your original child support agreement, you should first speak to a Jacksonville divorce attorney at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. We can discuss the changes you have experienced and advise you on the best way to proceed.
