How can I modify a wage garnishment for two children once the amount is paid and one child turns 18?

If the garnishment is being done by DCSE, they will back it down once the arrearage is paid, although it may take them a pay period or 2 to notice. You can call them if they don't change it. Once your eldest turns 18/graduates from high school you can ask for modification. If there has been a material change in circumstances (for example, you earn less through no fault of your own), you can file for a modification. There are no limits on how often you can file, but if your modification is denied it can, in the long run, work against you.
