Hello I have sole physical custody of my son, I am his father, his mother and I share legal custody. She has visitation at her parent's home every other weekend and she is ordered to pay $25 per week for child support. I just had her served with a complaint for modification of the judgment already in place, I requested the visitation between her and my son be increased as well as an increase in child support that she pays. Also I requested that she be responsible for half the cost of school clothes, school shoes, school supplies, and any extracurricular activities for our son. She responded to the complaint and sent me a copy through the mail. Her response was that she excepts the increase of visitation and parenting time but she denies any increase in child support and being responsible for half the cost of school clothes, school shoes, school supplies, and any extracurricular activities. My question is what can I expect in court? And is she allowed to just deny my requests?

She can object to the increase in support, but the court will want her to show her income and if it is high enough the court will increase her support obligation. You should ask for a new financial statement from her.
