Q: My ex-husband and I divorced July 18, 2017. And 2 kids and us live together I want to stop child support? How can i ?
We moved in November 22, 2017 and are back together as a family we both provide for our kids so I don't want him to pay child support?
A: If the person paying child support is now residing with the other parent and the children, generally a motion to terminate child support can be filed to ask the Court to terminate the support order.
If the children are receiving public assistance, the parents may need to make sure the public assistance records also reflect that both parents are residing together with the children. Otherwise, the State may resist terminating the child support order if one parent is not counted in the household for public assistance income calculations.
