In order to reduce or terminate spousal support, you must show that there has been a "change in circumstances" since the spousal or partner support order was made. Heres a good link you can read:

If you can show that you're making less money or that your ex doesn't need as much assistance, it is possible to get a modification.

I need to know how or can I file while living in a different state.
Family Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hi - sorry for the delay.

You should be able to obtain the relevant documents online through the court's website. Also, you should be able to mail in or even file the documents online.

You can call the court clerk's office and request assistance with obtaining the correct forms and instructions on how to file.

what actions can I take if my ex moves out of the state with my children without my consent?
Family Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 1 year ago

If there's a custody or visitation order your ex is in violation of, you can file a motion for contempt.....but if there is no court order in place, then there's nothing you can legally do UNLESS you get a court order that outlines your rights and restrictions.
