I am sorry to hear about this situation. What would be the argument for dismissal? Is it because she has filed numerous times but never has a good case and her petition gets denied, for example, i.e. "frivolous litigation?"
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Thank you. I will opt out and perhaps another expert may be able to help. Good luck.

NY is difficult to get a downward modification. She must meet legal precedent indeed and there aren't a lot of cases where downward modification is allowed in NY.
NY Court Forms don't show a motion for dismissal of a child support case but let me see if I can find one for you somewhere else
If you're still interested let me know and I will look for one for you. Please advise and then I'll know you're still looking for one. I'm happy to help you. The courts don't have a specific form available but a form can be found elsewhere.
I'm going to opt out also because I have to look for the specific form. NY courts do not have this exact form. If I find it I will let you know but in the meantime I'll let someone else see if they can locate it. Thank you!
Hello. I am a family law attorney licensed to practice in Missouri and Illinois only. That being said, I have been able to locate most of the NY Court child support forms. Here is a link to the forms that they have. https://www.nycourts.gov/forms/familycourt/childsupport.shtml
I believe some of the forms that most closely resemble your stated goals would be a motion to vacate adjusted order of support (used to object to an order that was changed that you would be fighting), You can also do an objection to a proposed adjusted order. Of course you need to argue why mom's stated reasons for modifying aren't good enough for the Court to spend its scarce judicial resources considering.
