What was the $80/wk based on BEFORE you became unemployed? If it was based on $38K is that what you were making with the company that closed? A judge may or may not impute it to that. Yes, you're voluntarily unemployed BUT, you were NOT voluntarily unemployed from THAT company with THAT pay. You have to be able to prove all you can make is $20K, that you just got lucky in that job and that you had no choice about losing that job. They may still set it at the $38K. All depends on who has the better case and what side of the bed the judge woke up on. It may also be that since you just recently made this agreement, you may have to wait a couple years before you can try for a mod.
