Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
The child can't waive the support amount due, but you could pay the amount and your child could then turn the money back over to you (outside of court).
But, the amount will have to be cleared through the court in order to get you off the hook.
Generally, no.....especially if the state is involved. In most circumstances, the court requires the arrearage to be paid. However, you could file a motion with the court to waive the arrearage and have your son join in the motion/consent, and see if the judge will approve it.
Yes. The court order is what binds you to pay, regardless of whether he wants the money from you. However, as I said, you can file a motion along with him and ask the court to relieve you of the obligation......but in most cases, the judge requires the payments to be made per the court order. But, there's no hard rule on this....it is up to the judge's discretion. So, it be possible, but not likely, that the judge would relieve you of your obligation.
