It sounds very sensible of you to take his revised situation into account, and the court ought to do likewise. Explain to the court that when you refused the offer, you were unaware of his changed circumstances, and that you're prepared to consider receiving a smaller amount until he is again able to afford the full amount needed. Or talk with him and make an out of court settlement together. As for what he can afford, maybe a lot depends on both what he does have, and what those "deductions" are. Could he add the child to his medical aid perhaps ?
Maybe if the sitation is in reality a bit complex, the Court would be best placed to get the evidence and facts, and make a balanced decision ?
