If you voluntarily paid the money after the termination of the child support order, then the payments will likely be considered to be gifts and not subject to reimbursement. If the amounts were involuntarily taken from your payroll by your employer pursuant to a wage assignment, and it took 3 months to get the order terminated after the child support was terminated, you may be able to ask the court to order the other parent to reimburse you for any money paid after the termination of the child support order. Please immediately schedule a consultation with an experienced family law attorney who regularly practices in the county where your child support order was entered, to discuss all the specific facts of your case and get advice on how to proceed.
