At first adjustment was set for 546.00 a month in 2000. In 2008 it was set at 400.00 a month. I was truck driving from 1999 till December 2001. In January of 2002 I stop earning 2800.00 a month and started making 800.00 a month. On some periods of time I could not find work, so I was not making my 546.00 a month payments from 2002 till 2008 that I got my present adjustment at 400.00 a month. My son was born on April 11,1992. On April 11,2010 he turned 18 yrs. old.
No. But you should receive a credit against future amounts due.

If your case is an Office of the Attorney General case, their office uses a term called "future pay," meaning that they do not give money back but rather they terminate the support obligation earlier. However, there is no exact science to their methodology. Sometimes they freeze payments while litigation is pending to sort out entitlement to monies, and sometime monies are refunded. It would be best if you have family law counsel to assist you. Failing that you need to speak to your Attorney General office in El Paso which is managing your child support case.
If I understand your question, the answer is no. You have to file a petition get your child support decreased as soon as your income changes. If the order isn't changed, you still continue to owe the amount ordered.
