Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.In a contested matter, it's likely that the modification petition will take at least 2-3 months because the objecting party will be allowed to state that objection.....and you'll then have to get a court date to argue the matter, and that will likely be the longest part or biggest factor in how long this takes. But, usually, the judge will make the modification retroactive AT LEAST back to the filing date, and sometimes beyond.
