I am a stay at home mom so I do not have any other income besides child support, which I get for my son. My ex is an engineer makes a lot of money; his salary is $204,000 a year and he gives me $3,900 a month for support. Where I leave it is pretty expensive (my rent alone is $1,000) and I told him I we needed more and I was going to take him back to court and get the custody agreement modified. He told him that he doesn't think that is fair as he already pays more than the court ordered amount and instead he would pay for daycare as well but for any additional expenses he will only pay if I give him a receipt as proof that it is just for my son. Which I don't think it is fair that I have to get approval from him.
Have any of you had any luck going back to court and getting the custody and child support amount modified? I being reasonable for wanting him to contributing his fair share for my son?
