During the period of time when a court has ordered child support, a party may not unilaterally or on their own decision stop or modify their support obligation. They can only do that by a written agreement of the two parties, meaning a document that both parties have signed, preferably in the presence of a notary, or with a court order, meaning that one party went to court and asked for a reduction – whether it’s a long-term reduction or a temporary reduction. And only then with that court order could they reduce their support.
