Many of our clients are not sure whether or not they will have to pay or receive child support. This will depend who has custody of the child.
Transcription of the family lawyer's response : Will I pay or receive child support? This will depend who has custody of the child. Whoever had more time with the child will be receiving child support. It’s a misconception that if you are a man you are not going to be receiving child support. If you are the man and you are the one who has the custody of your child, you will be receiving child support from the mother. Is another misconception that if the mother doesn’t work she doesn’t have to pay. No, she will have to pay even if she doesn’t work. She has a child and the court will include the money in Florida so the she have to be obligated to pay a monthly amount of child support.
