I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Where does the child now live?

Customer
the child lives with his girlfriend in his own apartment in the province of Quebec.

Then the court that has jurisdiction is still the court in Quebec and that means I better opt out and let our Quebec lawyer step in as the law is different in Quebec.

Thanks

Hi,

If the child is working and is autonomous, it would be possible to terminate child support either by a Motion with the consent of the adult child or by depositing a recourse ''against'' the adult child to terminate it. The Superior Court of Quebec is the Court to hear this. Any family law practitioner in Quebec will be able to do this for you.

I trust my answer sends you in the right direction.
