No.  I would wait no longer.  This is a huge issue.  I would move the Court for modification right now.  it may even take 30-60 days to get it into Court.  I would ask for the support to be altered retroactively to the time this all started.  In my opinion, the time for action is now.  I am sorry this is happening.

Customer
Thank you so much. That is what I was thinking but wanted to ensure enough time had passed to help stregthen our case.
Customer

Waiting only prolongs this.  It will take a month or two to get a Court date.  Why not start now?  I see no downside.

Customer
He's afraid. She really took him to the cleaners since the divorce over 11 years ago but he is convinced the court will side with her and take away his children.

I am sorry to hear that.  Now is the time to stand up to her.  He is paying support needlessly.
