I am trying to find out how to stop paying child support.

Q) I am trying to find out how to stop paying child support. My son has turned 19 and under the circuit courts the support will fall off but my case was through social services. Does the child support law act the same in that case? I couldn’t find who I needed to contact.

A) In Indiana in order for a court to terminate a child support order prior to 19, a petition must be filed with the court. If a non-custodial parent owes any arrearage at the point when the order for child support terminates, he or she is still required to pay the arrearages.
