I?m NCP. Son turns 19 in January but begins college this month. Will be moving out of home with CP this weekend. College is in another town 4 hours from both parents.
Order reads: Child support section: CS? due each month until minor child reaches the age of nineteen, shall marry, die, or otherwise becomes emancipated.
College section: The Father? Mother shall pay?, beginning on the child?s 19th birthday or upon said child beginning the fall academic term of his freshman year in college.
Interpretation is needed as I need to know, do I continue to pay both child support and the post minority support until son reaches 19 in January? I?ve sent check for entire month of August even though he will spend only one night of the month with CP. It will be a hardship for me to pay for both as the child support is $795 per month and if I must pay this until January? plus college expenses?. Anyway, wondered what the interpretation from Uncle Lee is on this? I want to do the right thing but I do not see why I should pay almost $4000 in child support over the next five months when he isn?t living with CP and both of us have been ordered to pay our portions of college that begins prior to his 19th birthday.
Didn't you already ask this question, under a different handle?
