If the judge hasn't entered an order of support - then there are 2 ways this could go:
1) that you oppose the modification of support because there has not been a "substantial change in circumstances" for a hearing (she must plead that there has been a change in her financial situation before a judge will give her a hearing on a modification of support)
2) that the judge does give a modification hearing and the support order is based upon the support guidelines dependant upon what your and her net incomes are
If the judge gives the modification of support hearing - then the hearing will be held and you will have to present eveidence of your net income and any extra oridinary expenses could be deducted therefrom (extraordinary expenses could be medical costs, frail or needy family member, etc.)
A letter of reconsideration is not applicable in your situation - because the judge hasn't ruled on anything yet.
