Florida Lottery Winnings

If a parent owes past-due child support and/or past-due costs and wins a Florida lottery prize of $600 or more, the past-due amount and costs may be taken from the lottery winnings.

When lottery winnings are earned, the Child Support Program mails the parent who owes support a notice. The notice states the past-due amount that will be taken and explains how to request a hearing. The parent has 25 days from the date on the notice to contact the Child Support Program to request a hearing or sign a form agreeing to pay the past-due amounts.
