TERMINATION OF SUPPORT OVERVIEW
Reasons why a support order can terminate include, but are not limited to, if the child:
is emancipated by court order
enlists in the armed services
has a change in legal custody
reaches the age of 18 and graduates from high school
The CSEA may also terminate a support order when the mother and father of the child marry or re-marry.
The residential parent of a child must notify the CSEA of any reason why the support order should terminate. The non-residential parent may notify the CSEA of any reason why the support order should be terminated.
Parties to the case will be notified of the investigation and parties will have the opportunity to request a hearing if they do not agree with the agency's decision to terminate a support order.
