    I agree with Lisa on this one. While you can sue almost anyone for almost anything, I don't think this is a situation where you should prevail.

    If you are talking about modifying a New Hampshire obligation- I don't know the New Hampshire child support guidelines and you should ask a New Hamshire attorney that question. In Maine, I think it's fine for her to note your mortgage and taxes so long as she helps pay them in some way, which she probably does. But the fact that she has to help pay such expenses usually isn't considered when it comes to calculating child support in Maine. What matters are the parties' gross incomes, daycare...
