Working Money to buy everything for herself. Ex said since our daughter has a job she doesn’t need to use the childsupport money for her. can I go back to court and modify childsupport since my daughter is working and buying her own things?
You likely are not going to get a decrease based on these facts. Your daughter is not paying rent or utilities - things child support covers. If she has a job to buy extras, like clothes she wants and going to the movies, that doesn't mean you get a reduction in child support.
No. In fact, you will be in contempt of court, if he has custody and you keep her at your house without permission. She is old enough to pick who she wants to live with so you need to consult with an attorney about filing a modification.
I'm not just trying to get out of child support, but I know that I'll be the one to pay child support for my 16 year old's kid (not legally, but to keep him out of jail). 16yo's other parent is completely apathetic to the whole situation and only cares that I NOT stop paying child support.
There can be many reasons. Substance abuse, sexual abuse, alcohol addiction, exposing the child to people with those characteristics, unregulated mental health issues, unsuitable living arrangements. There can be any number of reasons.

There is no minimum time to go back; however $5.00 per hour is not going to result in a large increase so it may not be worth it. Once a modification is filed and an order entered, then there is a 2 year window before going back, so it's best to wait until a substantial increase can be proven.

You need to consult with an attorney about your case. This one fact is one of many a judge can take into consideration in a final order, so no one can give you advice about what would happen without hearing everything that has happened.
You have to prove that you have exhausted all resources in order to avoid a contempt filing. That means selling cars, assets, taking a loan on a home, car. etc. to pay the alimony. If your alimony was non modifiable, then it can't be changed. You should consult with an attorney about your...Read more »

Uncontested means you and he already have agreed to everything. So, presumably you wouldn't be agreeing to give him items you feel are yours. If you don't agree on everything, then a contested case can be filed, and the judge will decide who gets what if you can't agree on your own.
