How can I get my child support case closed in Virginia?

You are free to hire a new attorney any time--nothing to do with the case being "closed" (whatever you mean by that). Call the VA state bar association to request a referral immediately. You can also use the find a lawyer tab at the top of the page.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE CREATED. FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY ON THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
You can substitute your attorney for a new one.
Also, she and her attorney have no incentive to file a motion to terminate her spousal support.
You should discuss the specific facts of your case with an experienced family law attorney.
Here is the speech: you have children involved. They are important, or should be. Get an attorney. If you cannot afford one try legal aid, the local law school, local organizations that assist with children's issues, or the bar association.
