Many couples who find themselves facing divorce in Florida began their married lives in another state. The laws in Florida often seem counter intuitive and vary widely from other jurisdictions. For instance in Florida there is no legal requirement to pay support for a child in college. The age of majority in Florida is 18 and a court order is required for child support to continue even through the end of high school if the child will turn eighteen during their senior year.
