You can do an agreed order to terminate child support all together. Although, I am not sure why you would want to do that... if you don't want to enforce it, just don't bother enforcing it. The Order is still in effect, and it will still accrue, but if he doesn't pay it, that is his issue, not yours.
If you want to terminate though just to have the issue out of your life, I would have his lawyer (he should pay for this, not you) draw up an agreed order terminating child support.
As to whether this will negatively impact your son... only financially. It won't have any effect on custody or visitation.
So I can reach out to his lawyer and have them draw up the papers for terminating the order and he should have to pay for this? I just don't want to reach out to his lawyer and get any kind of negative responses or attitudes for wanting to terminate the support order.
