IIn Florida, the non-custodial parent is legally obligated to provide child support under the guidelines in Chapter 61, Florida Statutes. The non-custodial parent has reasonable visitation rights, unless restrictions are imposed by court order. If the non-custodial parent does not exercise his or her visitation rights, those rights do not disappear. Please contact a local family law attorney to answer any specific questions that you may have. If you are not currently receiving support for your child, then go directly to legal aid for assistance.
