Child Support cases are typically instituted by the Florida Department of Revenue, which is often referred to as the "DOR". Such child support cases are limited to the determination of paternity, establishment of child support payments, and provision of health insurance for the child. The DOR may also pursue payment of past-due child support for up to two years. The DOR also has punitive powers to fine parents for delinquent payments, to suspend driving privileges or to jail a parent for failing to make their child support payments. It is surprising to many, that although the DOR has many powers to compel payment, and punish non-payment of child-support, the DOR does not have the power to institute a visitation schedule between the child and their non-custodial parent.
