Child Support Past 18 In Florida

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

In the strong majority of cases, paying child support in Florida will end when your child reaches the age of 18.

Changing Your Florida Child Support Payment

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

The Nature of Florida Child Support

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

The average person tends to labor under the misapprehension that when a custodial parent is receiving child support, that support money should only ever be used to cover a child’s bare minimum needs – food, clothing, and shelter.

What Is Imputed Income?

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

Child support is a right owed to every child from their parents. If the parents choose to divorce, the court will usually assign a certain amount of child support to be paid each month, from the noncustodial parent to the custodial parent (in trust for the child). However, sometimes the noncustodial parent will try… Read More »


Sudden Changes To Child Support

By Steven A. Mason, P.A. |

When people with children get divorced, they must make provision for child support in all but the most rare circumstances. It is possible, over time, to modify a support agreement, though, especially if a significant or sudden change occurs in your life or in the life of your child or children. If a change… Read More »
