I will try to best answer your question.
I would suggest filing a petition to modify the child support payment immediately. Your position will be based on a reduction of income and challenges to proof of payment for babysitting expenses. Mother will need to provide signed receipts and/or cashed checks. If she's going to insist on paying cash you will state you need all receipts in order to claim on tax returns and for her to be reimbursed.
If your income was 204000 the support does not sound excessive if your income was 130000 it does sound excessive.
I hope this information and advice is helpful and I wish you the best of luck.
In regards ***** ***** fluctuating income from commissions, they will take an average over the course of the year you are in. If your last tax return indicates 204000 you may end up increasing support by filing a motion to modify. Unfortunately, support office foes not consider whether you are working multiple jobs they just look at the income. I would recommend waiting to modify until you are able to file tax turn based off of the income from one job. I know this will not provide you immediate relief, however, I'm concerned about the recent earnings being higher. I would wait to file the position of modify until your tax return will indicate income from one source close to the 130 range.
If you file modify you will be required to provide last year's tax return and current pay info. If you do not file modification I would not provide any information unless ordered to by court.
I would follow that agreement until your income records would support a reduction. Absolutely no point in filing to modify if it's going to result in an increase.
