Insurance for Children in Florida
Child support orders can be modified at any time. Special circumstances or income changes are just two reasons to revisit child support payments. The parties can agree in writing to the changed amount or can file a motion with the court.
Where it is reasonably possible, a Florida court will require parents to provide medical and dental insurance for their children.
Additionally, life insurance may be required in an amount commensurate to the amount of child support owed.
If a parent is voluntarily unemployed or underemployed, Florida courts may choose whether to impute income to the parent based on recent work history and prevailing earning levels.
They may decline to do so where it appears necessary for the parent to stay home with the child.
