I want to file for modification of Child support in NY but I now live in GA. Where should I hire an attorney NY or GA?
NB- I am paying $530 on one child + 250 monthly arrears on missed payment = $750 monthly.

Modification needs to be filed in the state that issued the order. If that is NY, it needs to be filed in NY. A GA attorney cannot represent you in a NY modification action unless that attorney is also licensed in NY as well. You need an attorney that is licensed in NY to represent you.
You are the plaintiff. You are suing your defendant where she resides. If she resides in NY, you must file your suit there. If she resides in GA, you file the suit in GA. Your place of residence does not matter. You need to file your case, and sue it out to a conclusion.
