Two weeks ago, I was granted $270 in a support modification (upped by about $100 from the previous order). My ex did not dispute this recommendation with in the 21 days given, so the order was signed by the judge and put into action. Upon finding that he owes $550 right now, he has decided to get a lawyer to try to get his support lowered again due to having another child a month ago.
Our current order is calculated based on my income being $1100 a month and his being $1500, which he insists is wrong and that he only makes about $1000 a month. The $200 that I pay for daycare is also not included on the order.
While my income is pretty accurate, his bank statements show him making approx. $800 in Jan and Feb, $1200 for March, and in April he has made $1700 (he is in real estate so I'm guessing business in that area is on the up).
If we end up in court for another modification, even with the income changes and daycare costs, could he potentially get his support lowered because he has a new child?
If I fight him on it, could I possibly be awarded more?
