Yes, and normally would be done by agreement. If parties cannot agree, then would file a motion in court to secure an order terminating the obligation.

What if we are just friends and have no intention of getting married and just living together in separate bedrooms as roommates?
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Then it would not change things, since there is no financial support being made.

Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

A court would want the financial details to determine if there is a change in the support.
