I cannot get by on what is left of my paycheck. How can I get my child support lowered in Florida?
The first thing you need to do is not not pay. You have to make those payments. That is an order in place. Do not violate the order. You will be found in contempt. You may be facing jail time. Do not not pay your obligation. Your obligation has to be paid.
Now, if you cannot make it and if you have good reasons, for example, you have medical expenses that are extremely high, then maybe you can go back to court and ask the judge to lower your child support because of your expenses and those expenses cannot be leisurely expenses. You have to prove to the judge that I have very high expenses for medical issues. The judge may deviate from child support guidelines and may not. However, it doesn’t hurt to try.
