Also I was asking for no court orders to be issued at all because I have paid and will pay what ever is agreed to with my ex and or the judge in the conference... is that misguided though?

Does any one know of any recent case law regarding circumstances of when a child of the marriage turns 18 what is considered appropriate and when should support payments stop. My ex is on the verge of letting another year go by where my oldest might stagnate and stall. We need to keep him moving either to a legitmate school or work full time...

Thanks again.
Here is a recent case from Alberta regarding child turning 18... (you will find many cases like this on CanLII). You might want to focus on the judge's analysis of "Farden factors" as referenced in Olsen v Olsen 2003 ABCA 56 (CanLII) .
