Lake Mary, FL asked in Family Law for Florida

Q: If I don’t have a job right now and have been applying every day and can’t afford child support what do I do?

I paid a lumpsome payment to avoid my license getting suspended and the child support contact said it posted late and tore up our agreement we had without telling me weeks later.

A: It's not clear what you are trying to say, but if an agreement is torn up that doesn't necessarily void the agreement.

A: I am not sure what you mean by the agreement was torn up, but if you are unable to continue making the child support payments, you should consult with an attorney to make a determination if you qualify to file a supplemental petition for modification of child support due to your current financial circumstances.
