Q: My ex husband owes thousands in back child support. Our children are grown and I do not need the back child support.
Can I terminate back child support owed to me? If so how in Nebraska?
A: You can execute a receipt for the amount owed which will cancel it out of the enforcement system.
A: As long as the child support is owed to you (not assigned to the State or a different payee), you can usually sign a receipt to write off the back child support. If you contact your local child support office or local clerk, they may have a preferred form for you to do this. Generally the form must be notarized for the Court to accept.
