child support MODIFICATION
I have received a pre-review notice in the mail, I have been asked to surrender all my financial information within 10 business days or they will review my order based on other sources.
I am in CT, am I am tired of my greedy ex trying to live off of me.
1. The form is not ordered by the court
But my question is by law how much can they raise my order if I don't show up?
I have been playing along with the system and seem to keep getting the short end of the stick. There have been times when I couldn't even pay my bills, I am hoping by not sending my financial info that they will raise it by a set amount (Cap) which would be lower than if I participated.
Good afternoon,Refusing to appear, or to cooperate, in the support modification process can be calamitous for you. You have no idea what "evidence" might be submitted. If you are not there to defend against it, the sky's the limit.For example, if your ex tells the court that you told her that you now earn $15,000 per month, and the judge goes--"Wow that great for you!-- and awards support of $3,000 a month, you may be stuck a long time before you can get a court to listen to your petition for modification.I empathize with you, greedy ex's can be a bad dream. However, refusing to come to the table with your defense may lead to a nightmare. Play the game the best you can. But don't give up and allow your ex to win by default.I wish you well.
