Default Child Support Question

My daughter is 18 and has graduated High School which fulfills my CS obligation according to how ours was set up. On top of that, she is getting married on January 19th. The way that I understand it, my payroll withholding don't automatically stop . I was told that I either have to have a lawyer to file the paperwork to stop withholding or get some paperwork signed/notarized and filed with the District Clerk in Montgomery County. I'm curious how many on here have been through this and how you went about it. If you used a lawyer, how much did it cost? After the paperwork was filed, how long did it take to go into effect?

Mine was listed on my original decree. I provided a copy of that page to my employer and they stopped taking it out of my paycheck. I didnít need to get a lawyer.

My employer had to wait for a letter from austin. It took me calling austin and then they sent it thru pretty quick. By then several payments had been taken out but were froze in austin and check sent back to me for any overpayment. That was earlier this year.

If the Marine Corp wanted Marines to have a wife they would of issued them one.

At least that is what my Sgt told me.

Congratulations on the pay raise.

If your employer received a form "Income Withholding for Support" from the Attorney General's office, then I think they have to continue withholding it until they receive something to the contrary.

But if there was never an order issued to your employer and you simply requested that your employer withhold it for your own convenience, then you can just go to your employer and let them know that you no longer need them to withhold the money or send the payments. That's what I did.

I believe I set it up for convenience and don't think they received an order. That's definitely something to check on. Thanks.

I think it depends on who it was setup through. Mine was through some thing with the state cant recall what it was called. I had to go to the courthouse with the HS diploma since he graduated after his 18th. And get the judge to sign off the paperwork., Take that to the clerk and they give you a form to give to your employer to stop payment. Mine was immediate after I gave that the my payroll people. Look at your divorce decree it will have what court its from. You can call that court and ask them. I thought mine was through the AG but they looked it up and was something else.

Not to hijack the thread, but if you were to switch jobs would that cancel out withholdings from current employer, then lets say and you just decided to send payment to AG, would it stop then exactly when you wanted? Curious as I will be coming down this road as well and dont see myself at same employer when I come to it.

Same here but I thought Texas it stops when they graduate HS even if they are 18. I sent a copy of my daughters diploma and decree.

My bonus son went the same route, except they hadn't dated that long. He is now out and they are expecting their 3rd child. I thought it was crazy for them to marry before he even had his permanent duty station, but they've made it work!
Sorry, no help on the original question, but congrats to them on their upcoming adventure!

My ex went thru the AG's office when she up'ed mine. As soon as she graduated, they cut if off, even though my employer still kept taking it out. The AG's office would return the refund. I finally called the AG's office and they sent me some paperwork to give to my employer to stop taking it out. This was 20 or so years ago, but like others have said, it depends on how yours is set up. You shouldn't even need to hire a attorney. Just got to get all the right paperwork together.

I had a lawyer stop mine. You are right it won't stop u til you stop it. It's just a matter of paper work going to the right places. Your work is one of them.

Yes. I have switched jobs a few times in the 14 years that I have been paying. Some places it was taken out and others I chose just to send it in myself. If the AG sends a withholding order they won't have a choice but to take it out.

I used someone in Houston and it wasn't expensive. I don't remember the exact cost, but it has to be done so....

Mine stopped early because my ex screwed up. She was suppose to get a letter from the school saying my son was still enrolled passed 18 and wasn't going to graduate until June 2019. The school made a typo on the letter and it said he graduated last year. she didn't catch the error. The attorney general contacted me and said they had a refund for me for over payment. I didn't accept it because I knew they were wrong. They sent it anyway and now I have a arrears on the books. I sent the money back but it still shows that at one time i was behind. Total BS.

You will need a letter from the school stating the completion of courses and degree directly to the ag office. They should know what you need when you contact them. Ther may be a form to send in as well.

I work for city of fort worth and I'm finding out what they need, then finding out what AG/State needs. I know they've got the paying part down but not sure on the stopping. Definitely looking forward to pay raise in June.......

I was told schools have a letter prior to actual graduation that states X child is eligible and scheduled to graduate on X date. This is prior to actual graduation so hopefully avoid June being taken out.
