Answer to Florida Child Custody Question
There is not enough information in your question to answer directly.
There are several possibilities here.
Assuming you were not married, and the support order was placed by Child Support Enforcement, you can file using the Florida petition for paternity process.
Download the Petition to Determine Paternity and for Related Relief form 12.983(a)
and follow the instructions on this form.

If the support order came from a final judgement of paternity, you can file using the supplemental petition to modify process. Download the Supplemental Petition to Modify Parenting Plan/Time-Sharing Schedule and Other Relief form 12.905(a)
, and follow the instructions on that form.
Or, download the Supplemental Petition for Modification of Child Support form 12.905(b)
and follow the instructions on that form. This is the court form you will probably want to file because you can establish custody, visitation and child support all in one filing.
