Can I file an amended financial affidavit?

New Port Richey, FL |
Filed under: Divorce

My financial situation has changed and I wanted to submit an amended financial affidavit. I am representing myself and am not sure what to do. My husband has a lawyer and unfortunetly with being a single mom now and not recieving support from him I can not afford an attorney. What are my rights on submitting new forms? Is there a limit on how many times I can change paperwork? We hasve not gone to mediation or anything yet, my divorce is a complete stand still.
