Palm Bay, FL asked in Family Law for Florida

Q: My child support will end in 6 months but my ex owes a large amount of back support. Can I ask for an increase?

At the rate he is paying it will take 25 years to pay it all back? None of the modifications seem to fit my situation. I don't feel I should have to disclose all my financials since I'm not the one who owes. Any advice as to how to proceed? Can this be done without representation?
