  • Question - is it finally over?

    According to the final order, child support (all this is through FRO) for my eldest ended a few years ago, spousal support ended a couple of years ago and I've been paying child support for my youngest up to now. My youngest decided not to continue post-secondary education and, according to the final order, that ends child support. I sent the required form to FRO, my ex agreed to facts and the FRO is ending my obligation to send them any money.

    Am I done? Is there anything I need to do to "finalize" this so I don't have to be at all concerned that my ex can come back to the courts to try and get something else out if it?

    Thanks.

    No you are done

    HOWEVER

    If your youngest decided to go back to school before they turn 22, you may be back in court to pay expenses and cs.

      I wonder if you would need to do a motion to change CS on consent?

        Great. How/who would get me back in court? Hypothetical question I hope, if my youngest wants to go back, that's fine with me and I'm happy to contribute, I just don't want to go back in court, deal with FRO etc., etc.

          If you agree to help out I wouldn’t expect court required... unless you and your ex disagree on who pays what

            Berner is right. If you both agree you just do it on your own. If you don’t agree, one of you will need to file a motion.

                Ha! Spoke too soon! Figures.

                Apparently my ex responded to the FRO that she wasn't agreeing to the end of child support since my child (according to her) intends to return to school in January.

                Should I go back to the courts now, or wait to see if my child goes back to school in January? If I go back to the courts, what do I need to do (I'm self-representing)?

                Thanks

                  Question - is it finally over?

                  Ask her for proof of registration. If she refuses, file a motion.

                  You aren’t obligated to pay cs if kid is over 18 and not in school full time. For the naysayers, the judge at my husbands motion—a senior member of the bench who lectures on this topic—said this.

                    Can you continue to ask for proof?
                    Child can be registered but not attend ?
                    Iv known kids to register than stop going etc
                    Certainly the law require more than this
                    Transcripts?

                      OK. My child is definitely not going back to school in January so I'm going to file the necessary forms which are, I believe, 15 and 15A to end child support.

                      Do I also need to fill out a financial statement?

                      Thanks.

                        Yay, just about finished

                        Yay, I believe it is over for us. My spouse’s ex says she doesn’t want the money anymore. That it looks like their child will not be attending post-secondary.

                        Got the form 15D (Motion to change Child Support on consent) ready to be signed. Got the draft order ready and the paperwork to send to FRO. My husband will be filing on-line, is he missing anything?

                        FYI-We moved out of area from where the original order was made, will this make a difference.

                        Thank you

                          You will need to file the consent morion in the jurisdiction where the file is at.

                            How do you do that when you are now 4 hours away from that location and you are going to file online? Ensure that the court address in the forms is the address from the original court order?

                              Just found in the filing documents “If you are asking the court to change a final order, you must go back to the same level of court that made the order. For example, if the Superior Court of Justice made the order, you must go back to a Superior Court of Justice location to change it. You will likely go back to the same court that made the order you are asking to change unless one or both of you has moved to another court jurisdiction”

                              As long as it is filed in the correct court. Ie Superior Court of Justice, Family Branch then we are good to go
