Reduction of Support denied in NJ AGAIN

I have been fighting with the court system in Morris County NJ over spousal and child support for over a year. It seems that they are trying to make it impossible to meet the obligations.
I was railroaded in the divorce into accepting a huge weekly support of $565.00 ($300 for spouse and $265 for kids). The court gagged me and I was not able to dispute any of the financial claims made by her lawyer.
Now its almost 3 years later and I and destitute. I ran though all my savings to try and keep the payments covered. I have been unable to find enough work to meet the support needs and probation has been all over me
