Normally, a child support order should terminate automatically. In LA, this terminates at 18, or end of high school, or 19 - whichever first. So here, it should terminate.
However sometimes, it does not terminate automatically. If so, then one has to file a motion
in the Court, asking for the termination and serve the other party and DCFS
if it is was involved in any way or is involved in the garnishment. Once this happens, the Court will hold a quick hearing and should order the termination of said support.
