Florida Child Support & Alimony: What is an Obligee? What is an Obligor?

If you are going through a Florida family law case involving alimony or child support, you have probably run into the terms “obligee” and “obligor.”  So what do these terms mean?

You can find definitions of both of these terms in section 61.046 of the Florida Statutes.

“Obligee” is defined as “the person to whom payments are made pursuant to an order establishing, enforcing, or modifying an obligation for alimony, for child support, or for alimony and child support.”

“Obligor” is defined as “a person responsible for making payments pursuant to an order establishing, enforcing, or modifying an obligation for alimony, for child support, or for alimony and child support.”

Essentially, the “Obligee” is the person receiving alimony or child support, and the “Obligor” is the person paying alimony or child support.
