CD mod in TX

Posting this separately to be more objective on this.

I will file for CS mod. The question is, should I file directly with the TX AG's office (longer time) or in court with a lawyer (more expensive)?
I have 50/50 joint custody and currently pay 650 when guideline says it should be 650, and I had 30% reduction in income compared to when I divorced in 2015. One lawyer said I should be paying zero because is 50/50, but it's not consensus.
My currently income is 55k, with overtime it may go to 60, maybe 65, but it is seasonal. She never had any income, but she is far, very far from being poor (actually, that's why she never worked).

No point in having two threads with the same topic. Do the homework and report back what you learn.

When opportunity knocks, it's incumbent upon you to take advantage of it. Frankly Bro, I'd say you missed your chance.

In Texas, Child Support modification may occur 3 yrs after the last CS order was entered. Only 15 mos to go.

you started 2 threads to whine about your ex when you're too lazy to file paperwork.
