Sometimes one parent is so happy to be divorced from the other parent that they agree to no child support if the other parent will “just go away.” Since the courts will not allow parents to “contract away” the child’s right to child support, these agreements are not enforceable, and a court will rarely sign a child support order that does not have a monthly payment (a transfer payment) in it, unless the facts fully justify that result.
If you sincerely wish to have a no-transfer payment child support order, and the facts are reasonable, you will still likely need an attorney to craft that support order so that the court will sign it.
If somehow the court did sign a no-transfer payment order that was not justified by the facts, or if the facts (incomes or child-costs) of the parents have changed, then you can get an attorney on your side to file for a modification of the child support order.
