Can I make arrangements to pay off my child support obligation 6 months before my obligations end?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Alpharetta, GA

My daughter exits High School in one year, I'm moving out of the country 6 months before my daughter graduates. I'd like to know if I can pay off my child support obligations ahead of time and get the court to acknowledge that I have fulfilled this financial obligation.

    just plug in the correct dates ......... just be sure to pay by check .
