I am ordered to pay child support for my daughter for 4 years of college but my daughter ( graduating high school next month) is moving in with her boyfriend and out of state and she will start college in spring. I pay my ex wife directly. I am not ordered to pay for college. This was a Massachusetts divorce. She is also moving to Florida where I live.
Thank you for your attention to this matter
You should file a Complaint for Modification in Massachusetts (as that is the state with continuing and exclusive jurisdiction over child support), as your daughter will no longer be living with the custodial parent. It is your responsibility to ensure that the support order is officially terminated, so file as soon as possible in order to avoid a potential contempt action against you. Good luck.

You should file a motion to modify child support based on the change of circumstances. Best wishes.
You do have to have the court change the order or you could be held in contempt. You must file a Complaint for Modification in the original court that ordered the child support. Good luck.
