Child Support


#1

you are done unless you have some other agreement beyond their 18th year.


#2

Does this require going to court or do you simply stop paying?He’s been done with school for a couple of months now…
thanks for the info

You should contact your child support offices immediately. You will probably have to file something - I don’t know if it’s still the Request to Modify form. Since this is pretty straightforward I don’t think you’d have to go to court but I’d contact someone right away so you can stop paying.

Dear spidah59:

Greetings. Stop now. If you are paying through the child support enforcement agency, you may need to contact them right away and file a motion to modify/cease child support. If you are just paying your wife directly, stop doing so. Thank you.

Janet, I pay through NC Child Support Centralized Collections. If I file a motion to end support will I continue paying until the court date or actually stop paying now? Thanks very much for the info!!

Dear spidah59:

Greetings. You will probably pay until the court date, but if you talk to the case worker, she/he may be able to stop the payment immediately. Thank you.
