  • Mine is court ordered also, but he hasn't paid in over a year. We go to court in February. There isn't a reason I will stop it until the kids reach 18 (and I would stretch it to 21 if NC would allow it - I'm sure he won't voluntarily pitch in for college!) - why should I have to pay for 100% of their expenses? They are his kids too!

  • If it's court ordered you can't stop it. I would think all real child support would be court ordered. Support is calculated and the amount is not controlled by the mother or father. If the couple isn't married and the man gives the mother money when he feels like it that isn't child support.

  • I don't have court ordered child support and I am going to get a court order because in 7 months, all ive seen is $35. I wouldn't stop it at all...and in CT, child support stops when the child is 18 OR when he/she is out of school, this includes college !

  • the child support we give to my DH's daughter is not court ordered, but we give the same amount at the same time every month. it is still child support even though it isn't court ordered because we are regularly supporting her.
