Hello all,

I have been divorced to the custodial parent since 1998. There was never a time when I didnt pay Child Support so when I was offered to just have it come out of my pay, I thought "sure, thats easy". And it has been, however this weekend my youngest daughter (22 yoa) will be graduating college, thus ending my CS in Massachusetts. I have contacted the Military retiree pay office and they said because it is a "Court Order" which reads "to continue to withhold for child support until you are no longer employed by us or we are notified by the court to terminate the withholding". They then advised I ask an attorney. Any advice from anyone on this? Thanks so much in advance.

File to have child support stopped due to your daughter being 22 and done with college. That's the only way the garnishment will stop.
