Child Support Enforcement Attorney Hudson, New Port Richey, Spring Hill, Brooksville, FL
As a Florida Family Law Attorney in Hudson, Florida, I have seen the effects on families who are not receiving their court ordered child support. Florida Child Support Statutes state that both parents must be financially responsible for the support of their children. Establishing child support through a court order is the first step to getting child support. But sadly, many parents aren’t receiving that court ordered support. When this happens, there are legal remedies in place to ensure justice. Hiring a Pasco/Hernando County child support attorney can help you get the relief you need by filing a motion for enforcement and contempt against the “obligee.”
