Terminating court ordered financial support is a phrase that we don’t hear often but it’s an issue that many non custodial parents must deal with. Simple fact is that the Attorney General is very busy with thousands of cases & more often than not they will continue wage garnishments for months after the support payments were meant to stop.
We all know that it stops at 18 or graduation in Texas unless the order lays out different rules to be followed. Whether you are the custodial parent or non-custodial parent terminating payments will have an impact on multiple lives other than the children. I can’t begin to tell you how many times each day we are called about terminating an order, to be honest its usually the custodial parent trying to determine what can be done to help with college expenses.
If college isn’t included in the order, the non custodial parent is not obligated by law to pay for college expenses. Sounds crazy doesn’t it, well you would be shocked to find out how many non custodial parents are adiment that their support is done and the custodial parent is responsible.
Terminating the court order often times does require a skilled San Antonio Child Support Attorney to straighten out the mess created by the attorney general.
