2d Dist.

Holding: 
Affirmed.
After judgment of dissolution was entered, wife filed motion seeking injunctive relief, alleging that husband was attempting to modify court's order of child support arrearage through HFS, despite court's exclusive jurisdiction over the matter. Court properly entered order enjoining husband from seeking to modify child support arrearage order before any administrative agency. Wife stated clearly ascertainable right to protect finality of court's previous decision and to avoid relitigating matters in exclusive jurisdiction of court. Purpose of injunction was not to provide monetary relief, but to protect integrity of judicial determination of amount already due and to avoid unnecessary litigation.
