The issue of there being no court order of support does not relieve a parent of their financial responsibility. In such a situation the parent paying the support could cease payment once the child reaches the state's age of majority, which in NY is 18. More importantly, the parent who is voluntarily paying support needs to be certain all monies tendered for the child is documented in the form of a cancelled check, money order made out to the custodial parent or some other form that can be validated...NOT CASH! The check or whatever should state specifically that the money is for the support of the minor child. If this is not done, there is nothing to prevent the custodial parent from filing a court order claiming that no support has been rendered. Such action would cause the non-custodial parent in serious legal problems, which would be expensive to say the least. A safer and more acceptable option for all parties involved would be to obtain a court order of a specified amount of support and time.

You will need to personally visit the courthouse and fill out the necessary forms. Your signature must be notarized (the court clerks can do this) and the papers filed with the court.

What if your new york child is over 21 how do you stop the payments?

If the legal papers stipulate that at the age of 21, you no longer have to make child support payments, then you are free of that responsibility. You must go by what the court has ordered you to do, just as in any legal contract. If the papers hold a stipulation due to a physical or mental disability with that child, then you are held to that stipulation. Once the contract has been fulfilled to it's fullest rule, then all parties are relinquished of their responsibilities.
