Technically speaking, because you have new evidence that controverts your rationale for relieving him of his obligation to pay back child support, you do have grounds to re-open the matter.
He will likely try to use the statute of limitations and say you are time barred from asserting this claim. However, strictly speaking, a judgment has a 10 year statute of limitations to be enforced. There are obviously complicating factors here in that you waived the declaration and released him from liability. However, there is new evidence which makes the evidence that you relied upon null and void. That is the argument that you must use to re-open the matter by petitioning the same court that has handled the matter up to this point.
