The answer is the same as the last time you posted this. (Modifications can be sought two years after an order IF there is a significant change in financial circumstances).

A modification can be brought at any time after a divorce. After that, there is a wait of two years from the last modification. Several factors play into a modification. I would suggest you have it reviewed by an attorney. I have had clients come in after the fact who attempted a modification on their own with the "court forms" only to have it increased. As to you not seeing the worksheet, I assume you didn't have an attorney, otherwise you would have seen the worksheet. I would not do anything without speaking with an attorney.
