Sample "Letter to Stop Child Support"

A Letter to Stop Child Support is a document that can be used when one of the parents (or legal guardians) would like to terminate the child support they receive (or pay). The purpose of the document is to request the appropriate court to terminate the child support order.

This letter can be used in various situations. For example, when the child turns 18 years old and is no longer a minor, the custodial parent can file a Letter to Stop Child Support to the court. It can be done due to the fact that some states do not terminate the child support order automatically. However, it can also depend on what is stated in the order itself - sometimes they are valid until a certain date or event (marriage, joining the army, etc.).

Before submitting this document a parent should check whether the court has developed a specific form for this letter. If not, they can use a Sample Letter to Stop Child Support which is available for download below.

Generally, a Letter to Stop Child Support is supposed to provide the court with information about the involved parties, the request to terminate the child support court order, and the reasons why they should do so.

Dear Mr. Edwards,
This is with reference to my child support case [​
C ase Number​
] , administered to your
office on [​
D ate​
] . In the initial case file, I had requested a sum of $1500 per month in child
support payments for my then 4-year son Andrew Joyce, from his father Richard Joyce.
Please note that last month, Richard Joyce and I made peace with each other and are
contemplating getting back together. In view of these recent circumstances, I would like
to cancel the request to be paid the above-mentioned monthly amount as child support. I
have thought about this at length and understand the consequences of this decision in case
our personal deal falls through.
Mr. Joyce has not delayed or missed any payments in the past 12 months and I do not
expect him to pull his support away voluntarily even after an official order has been
passed. I request you to cancel my initial child support case immediately and notify both
me and Mr. Joyce at your earliest convenience.
Sincerely,
Barbara Millhone
