If you are earning less, you can file a motion with the court to reduce your support obligation based upon a material change in circumstances. If you don't ask the court to lower your support and show proof that your income has decreased, then nothing will change.

 

As for challenging paterinity, it is "legally" possible to have your parent-child relationship disestablished on grounds of fraud (742.18 F.S, or 742.10(4) F.S.), but after 15+ years, I wouldn't bet on your chances.

 

If this is something you really want to do, you'll need a lawyer. For a referral, see: http://www.abanet.org/legalservices/lris/directory/main.cfm?id=FL
