I requested a child support modification (I pay the support) because 2 of the 3 children now live with me. We finally have agreed to an amount but her lawyer included language that says "shall be paid via an income deduction order, and through the Florida Disbursement Unit.
I don't have any issues with paying via the state, but not through "garnishment". She says her lawyer says that's how it's worded now, since the laws changed a year or two ago, but that the wages are not garnished unless an enforcement order has been given. Is this correct?
Also they stipulated effective January 1, 2013 even though I filed for modification Sept. 18, 2012. (the kids came to live with me 1 in august of 2011, and the other in august of 2012)
