Why paying child support is important in Florida divorces

When you're going through a divorce, a lot of emotions can surface. If you and your former spouse don't agree on custody, things could become contentious very quickly. When your spouse files for divorce, he or she generally gets to ask the courts for temporary custody during the divorce. This can leave your time with your child relegated to the weekends and occasional weeknights. If your spouse stayed at home with the children, you may be required to pay spousal support in addition to child support. It can be tempting to refuse to pay until the courts finalize your divorce.
