Reduction For Child Support
by Aubrey from Winter Haven, Florida, Polk County
How do I appeal a motion for child support to have the amount reduced?
I have another child I support and household bills that were not taken into consideration.
Answer to Florida Child Support Question
I believe you mean to say that you have been served with a Supplemental Petition to Modify Child Support; and you want to dispute the amount that is requested.
You can use this form to respond, Answer to Supplemental Petition, Form 12.903(e)
, which can be found on the Florida Supreme Court website at www.flcourts.org .
This answer form does not allow much space to state the reasons why you disagree, but the instructions for that form state the following:
This form should be used when you are responding to a supplemental petition for modification of Parenting Plan, time-sharing schedule, child support, or alimony. Notice:
This form is used to admit or deny all of the allegations in the supplemental petition if you do not plan to file a counterpetition. There is no form for a counterpetition to a supplemental petition in these Family Law Forms.
If you want to file a counterpetition to a supplemental petition you will need to either seek legal assistance or create a form yourself.
