My son turned 21. How do i stop paying child support on him?

Q) My son turned 21 and is no longer living with his mother or going to college. How do i stop paying on him.

A) You need to contact your local clerk’s office for information on how to get a court order to terminate your child support payments as you child is now an adult at legal age. If your salary is being garnished child support will continue until the payroll department receives the court order “release” to stop the deductions. You need to contact the clerk’s office in the county where your divorce was finalized to find out what they need from you to issue the release. The clerk’s office will need your employer’s address information.

  1. Your child support payments can be changed only by a court’s modification order. The modification process can increase or decrease payments. The ways you can lower child support payments will vary by circumstance. You will need to convince a court that the financial situation of one or both of the parents has changed substantially generally. To lower your payments, you will need to file a motion in court to modify your child support payments. Most courts have pre-printed “fill in the blank” motion forms You will need to file this motion in the court that issued the initial child support order.
