Can I terminate child support for my children who are between 18 and 21 if they are earning more than half their support?

Portland, OR |

Both kids are in school and working, earning more than half of their ordered support. One is taking home $850/mo and the other I can guess is making somewhere between $350 and $400/mo. Although support is paid directly to them, they never have kept it; they give it directly to their dad so the real hardship falls on their dad.

  1. Whether a child attending school is working and earning money or not has no bearing on their right to receive support. See ORS 107.108.
