FiveStarLaw :

A can file for modification to the child support order to reflect A's current income or lack of income.

Child support is subject to modification at any time there is a substantial change in financial circumstances of either the parents or the child. Until the court grants the modification you will need to continue to make your regularly-scheduled payments
