    Answered . If the support reduction was requested due to a material change in circumstances, such as mandatory retirement, and granted by the court than I would say that the reduction was legally and properly granted. Your only recourse would be to hire an attorney to appeal the decision alleging that the court abused its discretion. This is an expensive proposition and one that is not likely to meet with success.
