Child support has been looking for my kids father and I was to until my kids found him
I agree with Ms. Smith. However, I think you may be asking about social security survivor benefits for the children. If so, you can go to the social security website to find out if your children qualify and how to apply.See question

The Grandparents did not have the supervised visitation rights, the FATHER did, and right now it sounds like he cannot enjoy his supervised visitation.

I live in Florida. My kids are ages 4 and 6. Their father lives in another part of the state. He has been a non-functioning alcoholic for most of his life. He has never financially supported the kids or me. I have not filed for child support ...
I agree with the other attorney's who have already answered. Right now there are no rights to terminate. While I understand your dilemma, you would need to establish paternity before you could try to have them terminated. I also agree with the opinion stated above that Florida is VERY reluctant to terminate parental rights.

I sounds like you are not actually divorced at this point. If that is the case, you should file, and that issue can be brought up during the dissolution process. You should definitely hire an attorney.
If I am wrong, and you are actually divorced, unless there is something in your parenting plan that actually discusses this particular issue, his behavior, while improper, is not contemptible.See question
Saw on docket and I dont understand what this means
I agree with the above answers. However, without seeing the Order, it is impossible to know what the Order actually states. You can go to the Clerk of Court in the County where the Order is located and request a copy. You will have to pay for that copy, (usually $1.00 per page). Once you see the Order and what is really in it you may have further questions, and may want to seek legal counsel to interpret the Order for you.See question

If I understand your question correctly, your daughter began living primarily with you 2 years ago. Since then, if your Ex-Husband has enjoyed time-sharing with your daughter (overnight visitation), depending on the county and the Judge, then his chances at 50/50 visitation are good. HOWEVER, that does not mean that he will not pay child support. Child Support is based off the Child Support Guidelines Worksheet, (it's a formula based on what you make, what he makes (net), who is paying for health insurance, the amount of overnight visitation for each parent, and other factors. It then calculates all of that into a child support number).
However, if in the 2 years that your daughter has lived with you, your Ex-Husband has not enjoyed any overnight visitation with your daughter, the Judge may decide that it is not in your daughter's best interest to have a 50/50 visitation schedule. It really depends on what the Judge determines what is in the best interest of your daughter. There is no presumption for or against either parent, however the Court does want the child to enjoy frequent contact with both parents if it is in the child's best interest.

If your Petition for Dissolution of Marriage did not include a child support provision, you can Motion to Court to allow you to Amend the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and add a child support provision in. If you are able to prove that he makes 15% more than he stated in the Child Support case then you will be able to have the child support modified. However, you should speak to an attorney. When you are representing yourself, the court assumes that you know the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure and Florida Rules of Family Procedure. The rules on Amending your Petition are specific as to what is required.See question

An Attorney can Notice a Hearing just as the court can. You will need to attend the hearing. Emergency Motions are typically given less notice because the party filing feels that it is an emergency. You will need to attend the hearing and should consider hiring an attorney for this matter.See question
They said that I owe 3200 based on my income even though my income is 0.00
Sounds like minimum wage for 40 hours a week was imputed to you. You are responsible for child support whether you work or not because it is your children's right to receive child support. The states imputes income because you are ABLE to work even if you are not actually currently working. The children still need to be cared for. They still need food and water and electricity, ect...See question
He is unemployed. Can state of florida come after me for child support?
No, you are not responsible to pay child support for someone else's child. However, keep in mind that the state will impute income for your husband, so if he is not paying child support he will accrue child support arrears.See question
