In my divorce it was agreed that we would share 50/50 custody of our children. My ex husband claimed he made close to the same income as me and therefore was not ordered to pay any child support. He has since made very large purchases, his business has grown and I am wondering if I can go back to court and request that he pay child support? he is self employed and hides a lot of his income in " business expenses" etc.

Yes, you can go to court and request that he pay you more child support. The issue will be developing evidence that his income has increased enough to warrant the court to consider the change a substantial change in circumstances.

Yes you can always go back but do you have the evidence to prove the income increase.
