You can file an Order to Show Cause, in order to request a hearing on the modification of alimony and child support. Call the court clerk to schedule a hearing. When you file the Order to Show Cause, also file a declaration signed under penalty of perjury stating the facts in support of your modification of alimony and child support. If there are any other documents you can provide as supporting evidence, attach those as well. Attach a proof of service to the documents you are filing with the court and mail a copy of your documents with a proof of service to your ex so that your ex will have notice of the hearing and your documents. The proof of service (court form) verifies the date of mailing your documents to your ex.
Prior to filing your documents with the court, ask the court clerk if any other documents are required because the required documents may vary from state to state.
