(1) I filed on September 1, 2012, due to job loss.
(2) We had a hearing on November 10, 2012. The order says, "Mother must pay child support in the amount of $890 per month beginning November 1, 2012. "
(3) I was paying $1,100 per month.
The minute order states that my new obligation begins on November 1, 2012. However, FC 3653 (b) states that it's retroactive to date of filing.
My question boils down to this: regardless of how the minute order reads, is the order technically retroactive to date I filed? FC 3653 (b) makes it clear that the order is retroactive, "unless the court finds good cause not to make the order retroactive and states its reasons on the record."
