An injunction is a civil proceeding in which a person seeks to have a court order for protection. The injunction procedure in Florida is complex and happens quickly. Serious consequences can result from having a permanent injuction granted against you.
Child support is determined according to the Florida Child Support Guidelines. The amount of support depends upon several factors, including, but not limited to the income of each parent, the amount paid for the child’s health insurance and daycare, and the total number of overnight visits each parent has with the child.
Child support can also be modified if there are substantial changes of circumstance. These include changes in income, changes in the visitation schedule, and changes in the needs of the child.
