I am a father of three children, two with an ex-girlfriend and one with my current wife. I have custody of the two older children. My ex-girlfriend pays $100.00 per week in child support. She has recently filed a petition to decrease support payments as she is pregnant and has been taken out of work due to complications with her pregnancy. Will she be required to pay the accumulated arrears from the time she was not working? We did have an initial court date in June where the judge told her that she was aware of the support order when she became pregnant and she must prove with a letter from her doctor why she was removed from work due to pregnancy complications. Thank you for your help.
