– from Ronald V. in West Allis, WI
When my wife and I were divorced, she received custody and I was ordered to pay support. I have made good on the order and am current on all support obligations. My ex-wife has now begun the process of requesting an increase in the amount of support I pay. The family court commissioner has found that there has been a substantial enough change in circumstances to justify the increased payments. My income has increased, but so has the cost of my living expenses, especially with a new child. Can I request an evidentiary hearing to support my claim?
