Q: that was in July 2018, ex reports very low income (35K, dentist, and signed for 7,200 shild support), in Nov 2018 he went to court requesting adjustment to 3K, and he adjusted income to 130K, and I agreed. Now he is taking me to court requesting adjustment based on new tax returns claiming 106K....Can the deviating from income still stand? to require him to still pay the 3K (I had a verbal agreement with him at the divorce to not request alimony, and I was tricked into this)....I have an email from him to my lawyer, saying that he keeps reported income law and have the business pay for his expenses to avoid paying too much taxes..and I have emails from him telling me that if I dont reconcile that 3K will not last and that he will change his tax returns...can any of that be used?

Q: 6 years ago, I was ordered to pay my ex child support since I was the higher earner. Custody and visitation has changed since this order. We now share 50/50 visitation and custody. (My ex and I live in the same town a few blocks from each other so we alternate custody every other week). Also, my ex now makes about $2000 more than I do. Is it better to petition to stop the child support payments since our incomes are similar? or is it possible for me to petition for her to pay support since her income has increased? Is $2000 more considered similar incomes or considered substantial enough for the judge to consider her the higher earner and now pay child support payments? Thank you for any help you can provide.
