My step daughter turned 18 last month and she will graduate early in 14 days.How do we have child support stopped after she finishes high school?

  1. It depends upon what the Divorce Decree or Stipulation of Settlement says about it. If its supposed to stop at age 18, then simply stop paying and send a letter saying you're no longer paying. That usually does it.

    Good luck.
