Can A Woman Pay Child Support In Florida?
Yes, a woman can be made to pay child support in Florida. Under Florida law, fathers and mothers are considered equals, with equal right to parenting, time sharing (formerly referred to as custody and visitation) and child support. If the children spend significantly more time with the father and/or the father pays more of the children’s expenses, then it is possible that the mother will be ordered to pay child support to the father. Other factors may also result in the mother paying child support. Experienced father’s rights attorneys like Matthew Irwin can help you determine whether you or your spouse is likely to pay child support.
