Mansfield Child Support Lawyer Discusses How to Stop Paying Due to Child Emancipation
I was court ordered to pay child support until June 2016 or until emancipations. My son has graduated high school and has a job. Do I need a lawyer to stop child support payments. I’ve had to pay $35 a week for 3 years for back support, which I understand. But do I still have to pay the other $65 out of pocket for my son who is 19 with a job and not in school?
As an experienced Mansfield Child Support Lawyer, I often help clients with this type of matter. It really depends on whether your son is principally dependent on his mother, the custodial parent. If the job he has is not full-time and he lives at home with his mother, he may be considered un-emancipated until the age of 21. If the $65 portion of your child support order is going through D.O.R., then you would need to file a motion to terminate the wage assignment.
