I'm going through a child support hearing in Napa County. My former spouse earns $113,000 per year, her husband claimed annual earnings of $85,000 as of May 2012, and despite remaining in the same job with same title, now claims he only makes $65,000.
Our child lives 50% with both parents. Four months ago I became unemployed and filed for immediate child support modification which formerly required me to pay her $720 per month.
She has also stopped working (taking FMLA leave) and claims her paediatrician "recommended" she stay at home with her son until he is 2 years old.
I'm on food stamps and cash aid. She has an attorney, I do not. For discovery purposes, since she now claims to be 100% living off her husbands reduced salary, can I send a FL-397 to husbands employer?
