A: The Court cannot go back to the point you received a salary increase unless that was the same date the motion to modify your child support was filed. In other words, the date of filing for the modification will be the date that your income from that date forward will be used to calculate your new child support payment. Therefore, depending on how long it was from the initial filing for the increase until the date the Judge signs the new order, you may owe some back due support if more under the guidelines.
