Child support modification

Diane
Hello, we are a family of 6 with one income, tax issues, bankruptcy, and on food stamps. Needless to say, things have been rough. For a year my husband couldn't pay child support and his ex was understanding. Then he started paying her a quarter of original agreement because we could barely even afford that but needed to pay something. We are going back to court now, but I'm worried what could happen as judged tend to side with the moms most of the time. The ex is re-married, has 2 other kids with new spouse, is a stay at home mom, owns her home in a prestigious town and a Lexus suv, etc. We have 3 kids together, a business that my husband runs but is start up and not making a profit yet, I'm working full time and provide all health benefits through my employer for my stepchild, we have been upfront with her through the bankruptcy, IRS leins, and being on food stamps. She insists we are hiding money, I know some people do, but we aren't and the IRS and state have fine combed through our financials to see that. There's nothing to take. We rent our home, have 1 family car, and live off the financial help of our parents (it's sucks!) My husband loves his son, but she uses him for the end game of getting money. Some weeks I can barely afford groceries cause even our financial assistance isn't that much for a family of our size. I'm worried. Any advice???
