Hello, I am happy to assist you today.
Take a look at the court order. It should give an end date to his payments, typically when the child becomes 18, or sometimes after college is finished. If there is an end date that is already passed, he just has to bring that forward to the court and get the garnishment to stop. He can also get back any payments he made that did not comply with the order.
If the order does not have an end date, you should do the same thing, and just explain to the judge that you are no longer a dependent and that the funds are not being used on your care.
Either way, your father needs to make the motion, you can't do it yourself because you are not a party to the action. However he definitely should not have a wage garnishment for something that he doesn't owe and is not being used to pay for your care.
Best of luck,
