Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Your child moving back in with you is grounds to terminate support. You would need to file a motion to modify/terminate support with the court immediately and you cannot just terminate support on your own without a court order. You have legal grounds to file the motion to terminate support and provide proof the child is now living with you and the court will end the support payments.
