Do I have to request that the court calculate my ex's income with tax credits?

Orlando, FL |

When going for a modification on child support, do I have to specifically ask for the tax credits to be included in her income? The first time we went I did not ask, but they did it automatically. I want to make sure I do not need to ask this time.

  1. Best answer

    You need to be prepared to put on every piece of evidence that you want admitted for the judge to consider. Don't bank on getting any favors from anybody.
