Child Support

Child Support

Divorce is an emotional event in your life as well as your children’s lives. You want to ensure that your child’s needs will be met, whether through court ordered support or an agreement between you and your spouse. Filing for child support can help you attain the assistance you need to fulfill your child’s needs. The attorneys at Copus & Copus are experienced Okaloosa County divorce attorneys and can provide the representation and guidance you need when filing for child support.

Enforcing and Modifying Child Support

The state of Florida has guidelines for child support, but even though they provide a good idea of the amount of child support that could apply to your case, they are not hard-and-fast rules that are guaranteed to be enacted.

Your legal options for child support may include:

  • Wage garnishment
  • Property liens
  • Contempt of court charges

Need to increase or reduce the amount of child support? Our divorce lawyers can also provide the legal counsel and representation you need to pursue such a request.
