What is the name of your state? Tennessee

I have been in a downward battle for almost a year now fighting an increase in child support from my ex. Since we were across state lines, it seemed hopeless to be able to increase his obligation, but last year he moved to Tennessee and then I knew I had him. Brief history, we divorced in Texas ( 2 years ago) and I moved to TN so to keep him and the TX law from forcing me back to TX I settled for a very minimal amount of CS, but now he has moved 3 times and gotten 2 promotions with his job, I thought it was time to have the CS reviewed. <p>
Working with my local CS office I have gotten a change of venue and TN has started taking out CS and the TX case has been closed. Now it is time for the CS to be reviewed and now I am hearing about this clause that is saying if the increase in CS is considerably more than what ex was previously paying then he wont have to pay what his state percentage is he will be given leniency. He currently pays 600 month and should be paying from 1200 - 1500 month. Has anyone heard of this or had this happen to them? What should or can I do?
