Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.
If your increased income is temporary, then if he has filed a motion to amend his support, then you would want to respond with your proof that the increase is only temporary and if any reduction is awarded, it should only be temporary as well. Once your income returns to normal, you should be able to provide proof of that to your ex and the court and then the normal payments would resume..
But this isn't really something you need an attorney to represent you on as you can easily provide paperwork about your income and something from your employer estimating when the increase will subside..
You are very welcome.. And yes, it is pretty much just about income and custody.. If you split custody equally, then it is just about income.. or if only one parent has custody..
But the fact that he is a lousy father doesn't really come into play in the financial calculations...
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. If you ever need me in the future, you can post a new question with "For Barrister" in the caption and the JustAnswer employees will get it to me.
Have a great afternoon!
