Greetings. It depends…if you have a separation agreement, you will need to look to the terms of the agreement. If you have a court order, you may want to try a Motion to Modify Child Support. Finally, you will also want to let your ex know why you are seeking to decrease the child support and possibly work out a long term solution if your income will fluctuate. Best of luck.
