  1. What proof do you have to show the miscalculation, and why did you wait?


  2. This seems like a maybe but as noted indirectly, those who sit on their rights at law can sometimes lose them.


  3. If the arrears are based on your failure to file a modification when you lost your job, it wasn't a miscalculation. The order doesn't change until someone files something, and it can only go back to the date of filing that motion at best.

    Since legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, and laws are constantly changing, nothing provided herein should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent legal counsel.
