I already have an order for child support. Do I still need to fill out the financial affidavit and the child support worksheets?
Yes, you must fill out the financial affidavit and child support worksheets. The court will not accept your papers for filing without the completed affidavit and worksheets. Divorce laws frequently change, and the court must make sure that the child support amount complies with the current laws. Also, the court must make sure that the child support amount is fair given the current income of the parents.
