Q: Does support end if I marry my sons father
A: Yes. Child support is intended to provide financial aid for the children of separated parents (divorce, parentage or paternity, legal separation).
Marriage will require both parents to provide for the finacial needs of their child. An order of support is not needed but the parties should have the Court end the existing order of support. An employer must deduct wages unless it receives a court order ending the payments.
As a point of information, I want to point out that if this woman marries but it is not to the father of the child, the biological father is still liable for support payments to her.
A: Our statute does not address this situation. I would recommend going to court to terminate it, so as to avoid the likelihood of withholding problems.
