Terminate Child Support With Agreement

Use this form packet if you or the other parent are ordered to pay child support for your children; and you believe that all the children you and the other parent have together are emancipated; and the child support obligation should terminate; and you and the other parent agree that the child support obligation should be terminated. 

When is a child emancipated? For purposes of child support, Indiana law (IC 31-16-6-6) considers a child emancipated if the child: 1. is age 19; or 2. has joined the United States armed services; or 3. is married; or 4. is not under the care or control of either parent or someone else approved by the court; or 5. is at least 18 years old, has not gone to school for the last 4 months, is not enrolled in school, and either is supporting himself or herself, or is capable of supporting himself or herself through employment.

If you must still pay child support to the same parent for another child, even if a minor child is emancipated, you must use the forms ‘Modify Child Support Because Child is Emancipated’.
