A new judge in my county will be hearing my child custody/modification and contempt case. The judge was my ex-wife's lawyer previously (2 years ago) for a child support case. Would this be considered a conflict of interest
Yes, it is a conflict of interest for your ex-wife's lawyer to be your Judge now.
