Completing Form A1 (to vary maintenance order)

I divorced 3 years ago, with the outcome being a global maintenance order stating I pay 1800 per month (less any CSA payment) until 2020 after which it is reduced to nominal maintenance.

My ex wife has recently remarried, which I believe ends my obligation to pay spousal maintenance, and gives me strong grounds to end the global maintenance order. I think Form A1 is the correct form to apply for this variation, but it is pretty daunting.

I don't want to take on a lawyer for this as it's only going to save me the excess I'm paying for 22 months, and legal fees may make it unjustifiable. That said, I'd pay for an hour if this time could be used to fill in the form properly, and use the remaining time to give advice. Does this sort of hourly service exist?

Otherwise, does anyone have experience with A1? I could really use some advice (ie, do I have exemption from mediation or does that have to be done).
