Greetings. First, if your attorney is not calling, make sure that they are not in court (if they are…try to cut them a little slack). One week of straight trial is the longest an attorney shoudl go without returning a call. (and that may even be too long)
Now, why not file a motion to modify child support immediately? If there was a change in income, the child support cannot be modified retroactively to the date of the change unless a motion is filed immediately and then the court can modify the child support back to the date of the motion.
Letters, when dealing with finances, are generally a waste of time. Does that answer your question?
