A: Filing a modification of child support is more detailed than just presenting a child support worksheet and addendum. It often requires the exchange of updated financial documents. You should consider at least consulting with an attorney to discuss your options.

A: Ms. Coleman is correct. You first have to meet the legal criteria to get a modification, and then the court can consider the worksheets. You should consult with an attorney about your case to make sure you present your case correctly. If you lost because you have done something the wrong way, you can't re-file again for 2 years, so you need to get it right.
