If you are dissatisfied with DOR it is time to hire a private attorney to deal with the issues. Was support ordered? Did he move to suspend the child support or file a petition for modification? Any attorney will need to speak with you regarding the status of the case before any legal conclusions can be made as to how to proceed. If child support has already been ordered, it might just be appropriate to file a motion for contempt and have a hearing.

You have many questions, but I do not understand the facts. Has someone petitioned for a modification? I also do not understand the procedural stance of the case. He would have to pay child support for an adopted child. Get to an attorney for a full discussion.

You need to retain an attorney to bring a motion for contempt and have a hearing. The court will also decide what the arrearage is and will set a payment amount for the arrearage, which is usually 20% of the monthly payment.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
There is no full custody in FL. There is a thing called sole parental responsibility, but it is rare. Whether child support is paid depends upon many factors, and certainly not whether someone gets something that is not available.
