I have been divorced for over 3 years now. state says I am able to file for mod after this period(or with change in circumstance).
-i am CP of 2 kids. 12 and 16
-NCP pays CS on time every month deducted from paycheck
-he insures kids per CO.
-50% of medical copays/expenses he is ordered to pay per CO(such as co-pays, kids glasses etc) he has never paid.
-he pays $100 less than state says he should pay in CS since day 1. it was an amount we agreed on because he wanted it $500 less than state guidelines. I agreed to $100 less to keep it out of court and divorce moving along.
-number of overnights and my income plays no role in child support in my state-he takes the kids a bit less than state standard(EOWE, holidays etc)
[b]Now the deciding factors/changes on filing a MOD[/b]
-he makes $10,000 more base salary than he did 3 years ago.(OT is factored into CS because he has been at job over 10 years and its guaranteed)
-he was suppose to have new job by this time and be making less money during 1st year, BUT no job yet. he was wait listed.
-he pays on time every time the old "leave well enough alone theory" come into play?
i have asked my now husband, for a mans perspective as someone who used to pay CS. i have asked another divorced mom friend as well.
they both said that NCP is the type of person to get bent out of shape over a mod-even if no changes are made, but just for the sake of me asking, he will become more hostile and angry.
but my husband and friend had conflicting advice. husband said file, friend said dont file.
the mod is filed direct with state, they have final say, and if they say no-its no and nothing happens.
so what does the strangers of the internet/divorced people think from experience?
