Q: Custodial parent, mother, in Texas agreed to end child support . What are the steps to do so now?
Had a conference to adjust child support payments and custodial parent agreed to end payments. Judge said it's a private attorney matter. Does this just involve putting this in writing with an attorney or what are the steps?
A: You will need an order of termination signed by Judge.
Here are some options:
1. Research how to get this done on your own.
2. Contact the attorney general to see if they will help.
3. Hire an attorney to complete the process.
Please note that although the Judge said that it is a private attorney matter, the Judge is the final decision maker on whether or not you will be allowed to not pay child support. Even though you and other parent agree, the Judge has discretion to not allow the agreement.
