OK.. NO, she is willing to fill out the right paperwork, and yes i pay to the state so i do understand about making sure its done the right way so she cant come back at me for arrears. But if she goes through the state and stops it, then she cant come after me for child support from the date she stopped it? UNLESS---- she wants it to start up again in the future? Say when she moves back to the states, at which time i have no problem starting it back up again.
I see the distinction, yes. SO, in order to officially stop it, it will have to be done through the court? And the court would have to sign off on it? So we are now talking lawyers and court costs, and lots of time? So even with her in agreement, she could always come after it at a later date, unless the court has stopped child support? Would a court stop it if she asked to have it stopped? or is it something i will have to pay anyways until emancipation of both boys?
Thanks for your help
