End Court Ordered Child Support in Wisconsin
Understand how to end court ordered child support and what steps must be taken
Unless specifically stated in your child support agreement, child support should be paid until the child becomes an adult. In the state of Wisconsin, that would be when the child turns 18.You can't end child support payments simply because you don't feel like the child support agreement is unfair. If you truly believe that the support agreement is unfair, you would first need to request to modify the payments with the court. Successfully doing so will not eliminate the payments, it will only adjust the payments according to the new circumstances.
If a child files to be emancipated from the one or both of the parents the court may allow the payor to cease paying child support.
Terminate Parental Rights
If the court or other circumstances terminate a parents parental rights then the obligation to pay child support would also terminate.
Third Party Child Adoption
During an adoption, parents who previously had the responsibility of caring for a child no longer bare the responsibility, which means the obligation of paying child support also ceases.

What our Clients are Saying
"Highly recommended. Divorce is hard enough and trying to do it on your own is even harder. The price was more than fair and the service was excellent. I worked with Attorney Holly Mullin. She was very professional, detailed, and personable. She did an amazing job. All I had to do was get her the information she needed and Attorney Mullin and her team took care of the rest. She was always available if I had questions and communicated openly with me and my spouse through every step of the process. I hope to never have to go through the divorce process again because its very unpleasant but having a good attorney like Holly made it so much easier. Thank you Holly!"Frederick T.
