If I understand your question correctly, I believe you are asking what happens if your husband loses his job. Regardless of the reason, if he wants to get his child support payments reduced then he must petition the court. From there if he is intentionally trying to be fired and therefore suppress his income then the pre-firing income would be imputed to him (child support would remain the same). If he is legitimately fired then it will be between the judge and him to decide how fast he will have to get back on his feet. Job or no job, he will pay something. If you have any evidence to suggest he is suppressing his income then it would be in your best interest to have as much information as possible to provide to the court to support your claim.
