Order by a General Magistrate Exception to Order
by Anonymous from Florida
A magistrate has entered an Order on my Petition for modification of child support. It did not take into account the facts presented.
And the Magistrate decided to impute income based on possible earnings instead of actual earnings.
What can I do now if I do not agree?
Answer to Florida Child Support Question
You have 10 days from the date of the magistrates report to file an exception
. Do not delay. There are no public court approved forms for you to use, but you may be able to get one from your circuit court law library.
If you decide to do this Pro Se, you may need to get an electronic recording or transcript of the general magistrate's hearing you attended.
You can call your circuit court self help center
to find out how to get a copy. Read Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure, Rule 12.490
and especially section (f).
Also look at the Eighth Circuit's administrative order 1.04
on General Magistrates for more information.Notice:
