Why is his job in jeopardy? Your spouse is still obligated to send the amounts he agreed to. Depending on how your agreement is drafted though, your spouse can always go back to court to get the child support modified based on his lack of income or decreased income. My suggestion would be to work with him on making smaller payments now, but full payments in the future when he retains employment. I would not amend your agreement though. Best of luck with this!
