Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thank you for the info. I appreciate your response. Should I reply to the attorney with these facts or just disregard the letter?
You're welcome! Unfortunately, we cannot tell you what 'to do' on this site, that would be 'legal advice' and we are strictly prohibited from providing that. What I can tell you is that you may want to consult with a local attorney who can review the letter but more importantly the custody order and give you some insight into what you should be paying (if anything), what your obligation would be if she were to file for an increase and win, and also what your obligation would be if you sued her for a decrease and won.
