Hi and thanks for your question.
In terms of the back support monies owed to the county or state, mother cannot waive these amounts. Mother is permitted to waive the back support that is owed to her and she could send it directly to almost adult child; however, if mother does not agree to do this, the court would likely not order that she have to send money to the child. The parties can sign an agreement and file it with the court re: child support.
