Q: I want to stop receiving child support through the agency and get it straight from the other parent. Can this be done
Decree states modification can be made if both parents agree. Do we have to go back to court
A: If you both agree to stop using ORS to collect child support, this should not be a problem provided that neither of you are using any public assistance for the children. Generally, the parent receiving support can request that ORS close the case. However, if you children are receiving public assistance, ORS may stay involved as the State has an interest at that time.
