Your post on this subject is music to my ears!
Just recently I received papers, based on a court ruling filed by me ex, that child support for my daughter is now terminated because her father will be responsible for her last 2 years of her undergrad degree.
In my response to his motion to discontinue child support, I did agree that a reduction was expected, since she does live on campus and he will be contributing the 2 years, however, I did ask the court to consider just that. A reduction, NOT a termination.
I have custody of my daughter and she has always resided with me until she went off to college. She still continues to be a member of this household and as such, does incur costs.
I cannot understand why the court would allow the father a termination of child support when in the documents they specified she is not emancipated, rather, "since the father will now be contributing her last 2 years, his child support obligation is no longer".
Our daughter is a student at an out of state college, and has a vehicle that, as all do, requires maintenance and insurance, and while home on every break and summer hiatus, consumes food, electricity and frankly, square footage and all that encompasses that. Our daughter still has financial needs over and above "room, board, and a meal plan".
I am at a loss as to what changed from when I financed the first 2 years of college tuition and now.
Can you email me links regarding precedent of the above situation so I can try to appeal this decision and ask the court to require her father to contribute even the smallest amount, over and above his obligation of college?
I thank you in advance for any and all information you can provide!
