Q: Child support lawsuit Vs. Disability

If I’m unable to work because I’m disabled. Can the mother of my child sue me for money even if I have medical evidence? I just gave the court my documents files for proof but the mother of my child is still pursuing a lawsuit to give her money when I can not work at all.

A: In Florida disability income is still considered income. You will either be imputed minimum wage or you will have a specific amount of disability received. Speak with a local family lawyer for more specific advice.

A: File a modification on child support to adjust your payment while you are in that situation. Do your best to get a job when you can so you can still support your child. It is every parent's responsibility to provide for their children.

Talk to your attorney to know how best to proceed.
