Office of Child Support - Termination of Support


Reasons why a support order can terminate include, but are not limited to, if the child:

  • gets married
  • is emancipated by court order
  • enlists in the armed services
  • gets deported
  • dies
  • 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.
