Q: How to stop child support in Puerto Rico? Can you provide me with the statute?
Hello and thank you for using Justia. The applicable laws are found un the Civil Code under sections 31 LPRA 568 and 569. They state that Child support ends by a decree ordered by a Court or ASUME only and for reasons specifically mentioned in the law. You must request un writting the elimination of Child Support order from the Court or ASUME and base your request on one of the reasons mentioned in the Civil Code of Puerto Rico.
