More details to this question:
I'm going to be laid off from my job in 2 weeks. I pay 700 a month in child support. My hours have been reduced significantly. Can I quit my job and start job hunting and still have my support reduced?

No.  If you quit, the Court will not modify your support.  If laid off, then you will need to immediately  file a modification action to lower your support.

Whether you are creating a new child support agreement or need help enforcing an existing order, you should have the assistance of a knowledgeable child support attorney. Your lawyer will help ensure your initial support order is equitable and adequately covers your child or children's financial needs, including housing, food, school, clothing, medical expenses and other related costs. Once a child support order has been established, you may periodically have to return to court.
