Child Support Modification – First Motions Filed (Doc 4)

Child Support Modification – First Motions Filed (Doc 4)
child support court first motion

Note:  It's very important to ask for what you want. I cannot stress that enough.  In the final judgment, retroactive child support went back to the date of the document where I asked for a modification of support, October 9, 2013.  Had I asked for the modification in my September filing, the retroactive support would have gone back that extra month.  

Additionally, I did not ask for contribution to extracurricular activities until June of 2014; therefore, I wasn't able to get any contribution for those prior to that date. The Judge did enable me to get an education contribution back to October of 2013.

This time my motion read as follows:

"I would like to petition the court to amend Mr. ​Ex's child support payments of $500/month.  That support amount is based on unemployment from five years ago.  I'd also like to request a copy of an active life insurance policy, per our agreement."

Seeing his tax returns was only a step to the goal of modifying child support.
