I've been divorced for 3 years and have 2 children with my ex husband. 3 years has passed since our Child support agreement was entered on 3/19/13. Now I'm remarried and a stay at home mom since 2014.
Your ability to modify the child support may depend on the terms of your divorce. Did you opt-out of the statute which allows for a modification of child support after the passage of 3 years? If you did not opt-out then you can bring a modification. If you did opt-out, see an attorney to discuss whether other grounds may exist.See question
