Sometimes, getting your ex-spouse to begin paying child support is as simple as requesting it as part of your divorce case. Other times, though, obtaining the sum of money that the court says your child should receive can be more complicated and require greater navigation of the legal system. Given the paramount importance of your children’s well-being, including their financial well-being, it is well worthwhile to make sure that you have a skilled South Florida child support attorney representing you in your child support case.
A recent case involving two divorced parents, Liberty and Charles, was an example of one of those cases that was not simple and straightforward, and the process that can be involved in complex cases.
The couple divorced in 2008 in Okaloosa County. The trial court in that divorce action ordered the husband to pay child support for the couple’s children. Not long after the divorce became final, the mother and the children moved north to Georgia.
