We have a court order for time sharing and child support. I’m curious to know if I would be able to take him off of child support and if so what is the process. I understand I can’t put him back on. Also, since the court order I have married. Does my husbands income need to be included to recalculate child support if we modified the support order? Or is it just mine and the ex that is used?
You cannot "have him taken off child support." The law in Florida is that the parent's obligation to pay child support and the other parent's right to receive child support is in fact a right of the child, which cannot be waived by a parent. This has become more clear and more strongly enforced in recent years. Under most circumstances, your spouse's income will not be included in the child support calculation, although under special situations it might be.

You cannot remove him from child support (and cannot remove his time sharing).
