I went to court for a child support review in July 2010 with my ex, which is done every 3 years. My pay rate went from $10.00 to $13.76 an hour so I figured my payments would go up, and they almost doubled which wasn't too bad because I could afford it with my pay increase. In January I changed jobs for the benefits and commute to work but my hourly rate dropped to $11.06 an hour. My wife and I had a child in March so now with the wage decrease and another child its making things a little tough. My ex also has started working since then. I used the online child support calculator and got a pretty good estimate on what it will be. With my 2 older children, ages 11 and soon to be 10, I have parenting time 3 days a week overnight. I get them every Sunday overnight and my 2 days off during the week overnight. Her mother has court ordered visitation 1 day a week which leaves her the other 3. Is there a way I can ask for a review and somehow expedite it because if I can't get that reduced quick I may lose my home? Would I be able to backdate the child support paid based on the dates of the "life changes" that happened since the last review? I don't want any money back, I just want a break on what I already paid. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! My main concern is the child support but I'm also curious about the custody, are we suppose to have joint physical and/or why did the judge give her primary physical when we have the same amount of parenting time?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
