  1. As your income was imputed, it may dificult, to establish proper grounds for downward modification. That being said, if sufficient time has transpired since the divorce judgment, that you can establish a pattern of reduced earnings, it may be worth pursuing. The courts are obviously having to address more of these cases, and it may be to your benefit to seek the modification now.
