I frankly don't know, but I doubt it because child support is a top priority and not dischargeable.

HA... I litigated that once and appealed it all the way to United States Supreme Court. Unfortunately my case was not selected for consideration. I had one vote at the California Supreme court on that issue. So the answer sadly is no, the interest does not go away.
