Modification of Child Support in Jupiter, Florida

(i) In a modification of child support case, the fact that the former wife's bills are being paid by her new husband may be considered as part of her gross income in calculating child support. In a recent case captioned Thompson v. Malicki the Florida Court of Appeals had before it a case where the former wife sought to relocate the parties' children, modify the parties' custody and visitation schedule with the children, and modify child support. The Former Wife wanted to move the parties' children from Charlotte County to Palm Beach County, Florida so that she and they could live with her new husband. The lower court denied the relocation but permitted a modification of child support.
