He needs to get a criminal defense attorney. It is too soon, and there are too few facts here to give a complete answer. The facts have to be investigated.

You need to talk to a labor lawyer about this. They charge hundreds just for a consultation and you will get no free advice on this subject, in my opinion.

Women do this all the time, or the male moves to a different state and another child support enforcement case is brought in the new state. But that is it, enforcement, not modification. She would most likely have to go back to the court in Escambia to get it modified, and not for the reason you stated, but because your income has increased substantially, if that is true.

The old charges are still pending charges and it takes many months to resolve cases like this. He needs a criminal defense attorney and he also needs to turn himself in. He will be arraigned and have pre trial every month until all of the charges are resolved either through the entrance of a plea agreement with the state or a trial.
