My ex has failed to tell me he got a new job with substantially more income (2 years ago). Although he updated his employment with Child Support Services, he hid it from me and our children (so I wouldn’t request a modification). Although he changed jobs 2 years ago, he still tells my daughters (21yo & 16 yo) stories of what it’s like to work at his “place of employment” so they would still believe he worked there (reported to the courts that he is making minimum wage at 10 hrs a week).
His deceit has gone as far as not telling his children his actual address and he is refusing to tell them where he really works.
He has also stated that he could not help pay for his daughters braces since he is so destitute.
My question is this:
I have requested a hearing for modification of support. Is the court permitted/likely to make the support order retroactive due to his intentional deceit and also demand payment for her additional uncovered medical fees?
