Hello Kyle,

you could specify the following script into your transition:

import java.util.Collection;

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.status.Status;
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.JiraWorkflow;
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowManager;
WorkflowManager workflowManager = ComponentAccessor.getWorkflowManager();
Issue issue = issue;
Collection<Issue> subtasks = issue.getSubTaskObjects();
for(Issue sub : subtasks){
	JiraWorkflow workflow = workflowManager.getWorkflow(sub);
	Collection<Status> statuses = workflow.getLinkedStatusObjects();
	Status destStatus = null;
	for(Status status : statuses){
		if(status.getName().equalsIgnoreCase("YOUR FINAL STATUS HERE")){
			destStatus = status;
	workflowManager.migrateIssueToWorkflow((MutableIssue)sub, workflow, destStatus);

Please, specify your final status first.

Hope this helps,
