Payee Terminate Child Support In Alabama
by Angela "VIP Member"..........
I am the mother of a nine year old son. The father was born, raised and currently still resides in Alabama. I am originally from Michigan and now reside in Texas. I have never lived in Alabama and the father has never lived in Michigan nor Texas and we have never been married.
Years ago, the father was court ordered to pay child support by default of not appearing for the child support hearing. This case was and currently is set through the state of Alabama and Michigan (where the child was born).(There is no father on the birth certificate.) About a year ago, the father went to jail for non-payment (from what I've heard).
He has only seen his son a handful of times within the past 9 years and hasn't seen him the past 4 years. He has barely paid child support over the past 9 years. As the payee, I would like to stop the child support order so that there are no ties between the father and I. The father is in agreement of this. Child support is the only court order; there are no custody orders.
I feel that it is in the best interest of both parties to stop the obligation. I have moved on with my life and am planning to marry soon. I completely understand that it could possibly prohibit myself from receiving further child support in the future - ever. How do I, as the payee, stop the child support order? I appreciate any options you could provide. Thank you.
