Thank you for your question

There is no reason not to apply for a downward variation to reflect the fact that your income has decreased - and the income she now has goes further towards meeting her Reasonable needs.
You should try and discuss matters with your ex first using Family Mediation - but if that fails you can make the applictaion to the original court using a Form A
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
You are required to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment meeting prior to making the application.
If your income has reduced by 20% then yes you have a good chance of success.
As part of the process you will have to exchange Forms E - and she will have to give full details of her income
They are both relevant and yes it will help
I am sorry but you cannot take any of the money from the Child Maintenance - and you cannot force her to support their hobby
You will need to apply for a downward variation as a matter of urgency
You can apply for a downward variation of that as well - or apply for a CMS assessment
