My question involves child support in the State of: Florida
My new husband has a child from a previous relationship. He had been supporting the child since her birth to include medical with the military (he is retired military) and it got to a point where the mother was demanding different amounts of child support from month to month so he recommended to her to go through the child support office to let them determine how much she should be getting. She hired a lawyer and it went as far as getting a temporary order for child support. They went to mediation but nothing was resolved. He received a letter from the child support office informing him that all child support payments for the child is to be routed through them. Our first question is, does the child support office monitor "temporary orders" or just actual orders for child support? The mother and child relocated to California recently so what happens to the temporary child support now that the child no longer resides in Florida and what happens to the temporary orders? My husband is currently unemployed due to relocation and the mother is no longer employed as well. Will the mother of the child have to file for child support in California as well? Any guidance you can give us would be appreciated.
