Child Support Trial
by Lisa from Orlando, Florida, Orange County
I have received by mail an order setting non-jury trial, stating the Department of Revenue on my behalf is against my kid's father, the defendant.
I initiated an action years ago but am now getting this and do not understand why there is a trial.
I am not sure if I have to do anything or file anything with the court or hire an attorney to go on that day. My kid's father is out of state and does not work.
Answer to Florida Child Support Question
Go to the hearing and see what happens. It sounds to me that the Department of Revenue is really that backlogged, and they are just now getting to the case that you initiated years ago.
It's a good thing that your child did not starve in the meantime. The attorney that is there on behalf of the Department of Revenue, Child Support Enforcement is there on your behalf.
Cooperate in any way you can by providing your ex's address, possible workplace, possible trade, etc.Notice:
