    Default Is a Modification of Support Done Automatically

    My question involves child support in the State of: Washington

    My ex husband was in jail at the time of our divorce. The courts put my child support at 25.0 a month - the min they could do because he was in jail. He has been out now for years and it has never changed.

    Do I need to iniatiate a modification? Will the modification back date? I also realized that I am recieving child support on 1 child and we have 2, will this child support back date?

    Thank you

    You would need to file for the modification of support and since you haven't up until this point, it is highly unlikely that any modification will be retroactive.

    Has he been legally declared the father of the 2nd child? Why was he/she not included in the original agreement?

    The mod will be back dated to the date you file. (Same goes for the second child)
