Q: My son didn’t live with me for a year , but i was still recieving child support from his dad for him. I still used the money to support him or handed him money or sent it via pay pal. His dad and i discussed this and i told him to go to court to fill out the form to discontinue the payments. Until then i would just continue to give it to my son. He said he would “handle it”. Now he has petitioned me for fact findings.
A: If he petitioned to terminate support, then if your son is living on his own & self-supporting, then support should be terminated. That said, generally the court can only grant the father relief retroactive to the date of his petition. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
