Based upon this fact pattern yes you should qualify for a reduction. You need to file a petition to redice the alimony with the court asap.

If this was a 5% or greater change in your income you may file for a reduction in CS. TRAP: The original amount is owed until the Petition to Modify is filed with the court.

You need to promptly pursue a Supplemental Petition for Modification. As there usually is no retroactive application, the sooner you file the better.

If you opt to proceed without the assistance of counsel, be aware that you will not be entitled to a “do over” if things go badly.

An internet inquiry is no substitution for an in-office consultation with an attorney.
