Your ex's marital status does not constitute a substantial change of circumstances which is necessary to modify the PP. Child support is based upon income. Her unemployment may warrant the imputation of income, but it is problematic at best and she will have 60 days to respond to your Petition since she lives out of state. You need to conduct a cost/benefit analysis to determine if your proposed action is worth the effort.

I think the type of lawyer who you need to answer this question should be the lawyer in the State where the paperwork is already filed. If she is your ex, then my question would be: "where is the divorce decree located?" If in Michigan, then Michigan law would seem to apply to the issues of custody, relocation, child support modification, and the like.
