My question involves child support in the State of: FL
My ex-husband owes approximately $3,300 in arrears and was ordered to pay an extra $50 per month at a mediation session several months ago. He never has made any payments towards the arrears, and now is being laid off in approx 30 days.
I am a pro-se party, but my ex has an attorney. A couple of weeks ago his atty filed a request to modify the support payments due to his impending lay off. Then today he filed a "Motion to Abate Child Support". My ex earns approx 4x what I earn.
My question is- do I file an "answer" in response to the Motion to Abate, a "motion to dismiss", or some other type of response? Obviously I wish for the support to continue especially while he is still employed.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
