In the midst of a family law case, the children’s well-being and quality of life is the most important aspect of the legal matter in the court's eyes. While the parents are able to voice their arguments for custody agreements and child support payments, the judge will always rule in favor of the circumstances that will best support the children involved in the process. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the children have the same quality of life they had before the divorce and also ensure that their needs, both financially and emotionally, are met.
In cases of legal separation, divorce, and paternity, one parent is typically ordered to pay child support to the other legally responsible parent. Under Florida child support law, parents are not able to waive child support obligations. Parents of a minor child have a legal and moral duty to support their child. Failing to pay court-ordered child support in Florida can result in severe consequences.
