Sorry if this has been asked before, please point me towards those threads if it has. BACKGROUND: I am the custodial parent. My ex says he is going to take me to court to have the child support modified because he tells us that his income has lowered since the divorce nearly 3 years ago. My self-employed income has also reduced considerably to poverty-level. His payments (since the divorce) have been erratic and I have had to chase them. QUESTIONS: I have since remarried—can my current husband's income be used in this modification? I have read that it depends on the state law (Georgia). Whatever the outcome, with this modification can I have wages garnished, so that I receive guaranteed payment? Any advice would be appreciated.
