i have a court order in n.j. to pay support where i reside .the child 18 and mother live in wisconcin. i know that new jersey's law really does not state what age the child has to be for support to stop.pretty much if they are in school even online schooling i have to pay and i have done a little homework and found out that in wisconcin the child support ends at age 19 period. my question is how can i or can i tranfer to the courts in wisconcin ? since the child and mother reside in wisconcin
Question: new jersey entered the original order ?

You need to register the order in Wisconsin by filing a motion in Wisconsin to register the order. She will be able to object to the registration, which dshe might if she realizes about the difference in emancipation ages. If she doesn't, you might be able to enter into a consent order with her to stop the child support and emancipate the child. Either way, it won't be an automatic thing to move the order and get the benefit of Wisconsin law if she makes an objection. Good luck

If you a hire an attorney, she is going to think something is up. It is also going to cost you a few months worth of child support so it might not be worth it. You can find attorneys on or
