My ex-husband wants to modify the support order
I was in a serious car accident last year and my ex-husband (residential parent) wants to help me modify my support order. We work with the Medina County Ohio CSEA.
I had a modification hearing set up last month but my ex-husband was unable to attend the hearing due to being unable to miss work. The prosecutor in my case told me we only had one chance for mediation which is free at the court and then the mediator would present the agreed modification to the judge for approaval.
She also said if he didnt show up to file for a legal modification hearing which costs $75 to file. We have an agreement to drop $3,500.00 of back support owed directly to him and a $100 a month payment from here on out.
Do I have to file for a full blown hearing or is there some way around this that you know of? Thank you so much for any advise in advance. Everyday that goes by I go into debt further and further!!
