Thanks for your question! I am working on your answer. This service is for information only. I cannot give you legal advice. Please stand by!
Unfortunately, Texas is one of the worst states for charging interest on arrearages. A Judge cannot reduce the interest being charged. The only thing that will change the interest rate is a change in Texas legislation. The fact that your boys are over the age of 18 unfortunately doesn't matter either. If you were ordered to pay child support and fell behind you must still pay child support as ordered, even after they aged out.
The only person that could offer you that option would be the person to whom you are paying the child support to, ie your ex. Your ex is the only person who can say they want less than what is court ordered. A Judge cannot force them to accept less than what was court ordered, and neither can the state.
