Q: am married have two kid he also have two other kids can the amount change on child support for the other two

1 Answer | Asked in Child Support for Florida on
Answered on Jul 29, 2015

Try to make your question easily understandable. I do not understand it but think that you might be asking if the child support will be lowered because he had two more children. The answer to that is no, basically. There would have to be a substantial decrease in his income to decrease the child support, and he would have to file a petition for modification in order to get that done. Afterborn children do not decrease the amount of support that has already been ordered.
