My child and I have a child support order against the NCP that was just established in November. As a result of the new guidelines not being established yet, even though they were supposed to have been as of October 2010, our child support order is less than a fair monthly amount. I work hard to provide for my child and we're still struggling every month.
If and when the new guidelines take effect in January 2011, will the orders established between October 2010 and January 2011 be automatically modified to reflect more accurate amounts? Or do I have to file for a modification? If so, what would be the grounds? Irresponsibility on the part of the Conference of Chief District Court Judges??? Can it be retroactively applied?Irresponsible to delay amended guidelines that would have made Oct '10 through Dec '10 child support orders reflect the current economic environment. Instead, I have to file a modification come January and wait for a hearing date, meanwhile receiving far less than his fair share of my child's expenses.
