-Could you explain your situation a little more?
What does his child support order from the court say as to when the support was to end?
Did he just stop paying or did the court terminate the support?

The court ended it on childsupport paper said end Nov becuase she 18. And yes state stop taking money out of his paycheck after her birthday. So yes court not husband

Dear JACUSTOMER - He can ask that the support order be extended until June if he wishes. I see no reason why he would have to go to court if he agrees to the extension since he was not in contempt of court in stopping the payments. Had he stopped them and not the court then he could be subject to contempt but in this case it was the court who ended the payments. He can just tell his lawyer he will agree to resume the payments but make certain that the agreement is only until June and no longer.
