The state will not pay child support. The state may grant TANF and/or medical assistance to the child/custodial parent if they are indigent. If so, or at the CP's request, the state will attempt to collect the past-due support.

How do you obtain a divorce in Florida when the spouse is in prison?

You can file for divorce without his approval. The lawyer will serve your spouse with the papers in prison and usually anyone in prison will grant the divorce. If he should refuse the law is basically on your side, but if you have children other provisions may have to be made because he is the father of those children and the courts would have to decide that.

This depends on if the father has an income while he is incarcerated,such as income from a business that the father owns and that is still able to operate without him while he is in prison or if the father is eligible for a work release program from the prison or if the father is eligible for an inmate job in the prison.. If the father is incarcerated and is not eligible for any such programs and has no other means of income then the child support will continue to be added to his unpaid balance and will be waiting for him to begin paying when he is released..
