Hello. I am here to help you today. This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.
Can you still request mandatory disclosure or interrogatories on the claim that was denied?
If not, are there other ways for you to secure factual evidence showing your ex-husband lied on his financial affidavits, and what he is really earning?
Can you access any information about what his own business is netting?
There is a surprising amount of information available on the internet, sometimes for a fee, though.
If you cannot access the financial information you need, it may be best to wait 6 months or a year and file again, but this time using the methods available to secure financial disclosure. Because people's incomes change frequently, the courts are usually tolerant of subsequent filings regarding child support.
My suggestion is that in any future proceedings you explain briefly that you did not request mandatory disclosure or interrogatories the last time you filed; were representing yourself; you realize your mistake in not seeking disclosure; and you have reason to believe your ex-husband's income has changed significantly enough to impact the child support amount again. The reason for explaining this briefly is so the court can see you as an honest litigant who made a mistake, rather than a bothersome litigant who won't take no for an answer. Does that make sense?
I am happy to answer any further questions you have. Please reply to continue.
