You can always file for a Child Support modification, if you can show there is a substantial decrease in your earnings. You would file in the Court that issued the Court Order.
If you have a complaint about the way your attorney handled the matter, you can contact the Illinois Bar Association and file a grievance, or if you feel you paid too much file a fee dispute. Here is that contact information.
You also can use the Bar Association's lawyer referral service for an attorney who will be able to assist you with a child support modification.

No, there is no such restriction. What the child support is based on are earnings and "earning potential" - you can certainly argue that overtime is not guaranteed, but the courts will include it as it is part of your gross wages
