Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?
This depends. Can you tell me, has your income decreased since the divorce decree was issued? Has hers increased?
That would be the key...if the court issued a support order, that is not modifiable UNLESS there is a significant change in circumstances of the parties. SO, for example, if your income has decreased, and hers has increased? That would be a basis to go back to court and ask the court to modify the support order, based on the changes
So if she is making more money now, you can use that as a basis to request the court modify (reduce) the order
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
