Read the agreement and final judgment. There should be a provision in there which talks about who pays the co pays. Normally it is divided 50/50.

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.

You need to see an attorney about cleaning up this mess. Short and simple that is what you need to do. The attorney will have to spend hours, like I usually do, trying to sort it all out and giving you the appropriate credit.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
The best thing to do is hire an attorney for this. The attorney will seek a letter of protection from the attorney who is handling the case he is getting the settlement in. You might need to have a hearing on a motion for contempt to get the arrearage determined.
