How can child support be changed in Florida?

In order to change a child support in Florida, you need to follow what’s known as a Supplemental Petition to modify the child support amount. Generally, to do this you need to prove that there’s been a substantial change in circumstances. Most of the times when parties argue this and file this type of petition, they argue that there’s been a substantial change in their income, but another ground you can argue is that there’s been a substantial change in the amount of time you spend with the child.
