CAN MY CHILD SUPPORT STOP IF MY 19 YR. OLD SON LEAVES HOME?

Q: MY SON HAS EMOTIONAL ISSUES & HAS BEEN THREATENING ME TO LEAVE HOME. HE DOES NOT WORK & THREATENS TO STAY W/FRIENDS. WILL HIS CHILD SUPPORT STOP? WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THIS STRESSFUL SITUATION.

A: David’s Answer: If the child leaves your home & becomes self-supporting, that is a basis to stop child support. If he’s not, and you forward at least some of the child support money to him, then most likely the payor would not have a basis to cease the support payments. Call a Westchester Family Law attorney for more info.
