Her spouse's income is probably irrelevant. But his drop in income MAY be grounds and he should meet with a lawyer.

Child support is based on the income of the parents, not the new husband. If the father voluntarily quit a job and took a lower paying job, the Court would not consider the drop in income. If the change of job was not the fault of the father, that would be taken into consideration. I would go in to speak with an attorney to go over numbers prior to filing. There are other factors that may come into play so seeking legal advice is your best option.
