What If One Parent Is Unemployed?
In some cases, the children of divorced parents do not receive the support they deserve because one of the parents is unemployed or underemployed — meaning that the parent could be making a higher wage if his or her skills and abilities were being fully utilized. In these situations, the court can order child support at a level that reflects the potential or former income of the unemployed or underemployed parent.
If your former spouse has the ability to make more money but is not willing to make the effort to find more gainful employment, you should speak to a Florida child support lawyer who knows the law and has the ability to properly handle your case. At the law firm of The Holman Law Firm, we work to ensure that children receive a fair support order.
