Can I Claim Emancipation And Have Child Support Terminated?

| Jun 12, 2016 | Uncategorized

Q: My daughter is 20, with child, and engaged to be married. She dropped out of high school and got her GED. She is not attending school nor does she work! Her mailing address is with her mother but she rarely stays there.

A: David’s Answer: You may file for emancipation, but it’s a harder case to prove than you’d think. Merely being engaged doesn’t equate with emancipation – you’d need to show she’s self-supporting. Schedule a consult with a Dutchess/Westchester Family Law attorney.
