Hello: If you are getting Social Security, your child is elgible for benefits through your social security as the minor child of a person who is disabled. Talk to that office. Your support obligation won't be cancelled, but if you can't work, social security can pick up the slack for you. Also, you can discuss this with the state agency that deals with child support in your state. If there is a court order requiring you to pay support, the agency can't change that order, only a judge to change it. But you have to tell the Court.
