Can alimony be changed if it is in serious arrears?

Question Details: My ex has willfully refused to pay his court ordered alimony. It was awarded to me 5 years ago at $400 a month. Since then, he has only paid $1600 into the court. He wants to get the alimony stopped altogether by taking it back before the judge. Will he be found in contempt of court and action taken accordingly against him, by the magistrate? He has had the means to pay yet refuses to. I want to garnish his SSDI payments but am not sure how to go about doing so.
