The vast majority of Florida parents are willing and able to meet their financial obligations to their children during marriage and after a divorce. At some point, many non-custodial parents have a difficult time making their child support payments, but work to make them up. Some parents, however, fail to make their court-ordered payments while taking trips, buying new cars and flashing wads of cash.
One father was recently in court because he stopped making his $1,000 a week child support payments. He had claimed to be financially destitute. His soon-to-be ex-wife, however, produced evidence that shows that this may not be the case.
