I am the respondent in a divorce, my wife's attorney had a RFO to try and get a higher support payment; however, I was forced to retire and had a significantly smaller income. Opposing attorney stated they didn't want to argue on the RFO, when we requested it be heard, the Judge stated RFO wasn't on calendar...in effect keeping the temporary support order based on my previous income, and now I can't afford it. The order is literally for twice my pension.
If they filed the RFO they have right to request to take it off calendar if you want a modification then file your own RFO
