If you asked in your Motion for proof of income, then you should go into Court on your Court date and ask the Judge to enter an Order requiring your ex-husband to provide certain documents to you. Usually the documents you seek would be: (1) most recent income tax returns; (2) bank account records; (3) recent paycheck stub. It will be up to your Judge to decide whether he/she will enter an Order requiring your ex-husband to provide these documents to you. When in Court, you should be prepared to explain to the Judge why you want these document - specifically you will need to explain to the Judge why you believe your ex-husbands income has increased since the last Child Support Order. If your ex-husband is not a salaried employee, I suggest you hire an attorney to help track down your ex-husbands income because nonsalaried employees often claim to make less then they really do.
