Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, an answer/response needs to be filed, if she has sought the modification through the court. You can do this on your own or retain legal counsel, so it is at your sole discretion. Child support is based upon the needs of the children and the fact that she remarried and lost her alimony, is not a basis to modify and increase your support. In this case, her new husband will not have to support her, instead of you.
