BD ( i hate this term, but oh well) pays 308 a month. He started doing this when he was making minimum wage 2 years ago. Well now he gets paid over 13 an hour, and I ask him politely to help pay for some things here and there. In reality, he should be paying a lot more, but I don't want that to discourage him from seeing his daughter. He doesn't have any clothes for her, and has only bought her one pair of pants in almost 3 years of her life. I dont think me asking him to pay half for her shoes (which would be 15 bucks) is asking a lot. I don't know if I should take him back to court.. WDYT?

Ask for a review. They will adjust the CS.

This! You can ask for a review and you both fill out a financial statement and then it will be adjusted properly.
