    Default A lawyer cannot change a court order, right?

    My ex is texting me saying his lawyer says he is to only pay a small amount of child support, so his lawyer is changing the court order. He can't do that, a judge can only change an order, right???

    My ex has decided he pays too much support, he pays guideline only. He has not given me a T4 since 2009, so he probably makes more, but doesn't want to tell me.

    I have a child with a lot of needs, and was thinking of asking the court to up the support to help accommodate the extras I pay every week for DS2. Not once has the ex paid, even though he is suppose to pay 88 percent of section 7 expenses.

    No, a lawyer on his/her own cannot change a court order.

    Only a judge can do that. Can't you have him audited to see his real financials?

    He knows I have read up on everything and have a lawyer friend lol. He keeps saying stuff isn't in our court order, but it is. Again the other day he text saying he does not have to pay me back within 30 days for section 7. Hello buddy the judge didn't give us different court orders, I told him what page and what section, he still says his doesn't say that.

    What a jerk

    I think a lawyer can't changer the order but he can request for hearing again and than may be through some solid proof he can change the order.So you must consult with your lawyer about this situation.
