My question involves child support in the State of: Florida
2010 was a horrible year for my fiance in Florida. Being a rough carpenter, he lost his job. Because of back ground could not find anything in another field.
He went to child support and told them he could not pay and all they said was - we can not help you. You have to go to court. we can not afford a lawyer and I know really nothing about this. Of course, they would not tell us how else to do this!
So, he took out a loan for college, to get an education in another field and he recieves no cash, just schooling.
Well, needless to say not long after he got the loan - he was picked up on a warrent.
His son is over 18 years old, just recently. He owes back child support. I understand now he needed to file for child support modification! I think it may be too late! He has a court date in Orlando - they are transporting from Fort Lauderdale. My fear is they are going to send him to jail. I can not afford lawyers, If I could, he would not be in jail - his support would be paid if we had it like that!
I really need help! I do not know anything about child support or family court. Since his son is over the age of 18, he should not owe anything further, but just back support. Besides paying 3000.00 to get him out - Is there anything I can do? Please - I need a little guidance.
