  • Can a supp petition for temprelief child support be filed if there is already a sup petition open (Florida)

    A supplemental petition to modify child support has been filed and is pending. In the meantime, the party decides they want the child support lowered NOW. Can an additional supplemental petition for temp relief be filed?

    Joseph’s Answer

    The party may file a Motion for Temporary Relief to get the child support lowered. It seems to me that would be like trying the case twice. You should consult with a local experienced family law attorney to discuss your case. Many provide free initial consultations.
