    Answered . You should file the paperwork in the court where the "main" case was decided. If the only case you have has a file number starting with BY, then yes file your paperwork there. I am including a link to some self-help resources on changing child support. Hopefully, this will be a good starting point for you.

    Answered . You need a form packet that you can get from the nearest Superior Court. Just ask at the family law facilitator if you can not afford an Attorney and they will help you fill out the forms
