Understanding New Child Support Laws
The state of Florida has recently updated the laws to child support. One of the items that is part of the new laws is called the Income Deduction Order, where one spouse's wages are actually garnished in order to fulfill the requirements of an agreement.
There is also the Income Withholding Order which can allow the parent to pay a smaller amount for a young child, if paying child support for one or more children. It can alleviate some of the pressures that the parent might face, as there will no longer be an overpayment.
