Yes, you need to be present at the hearing, even if you didn’t request for it, to make sure that you can defend your side on why there should be no modification on the support. Although it is not mandatory to be represented by an attorney, it is often a good idea to have an expert in family law on your side to make sure that your argument will be presented well, in a way that could best convince the court.
