Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If you have paid all child support that is owed, and if your children are over age 18, you should be able to stop child support. In order to do this, you would have to file a motion with the court to end child support. Here's a good link you can read: http://www.courts.ca.gov/1200.htm
