Would the court still force me to support a child for the first diploma with this type record?
Not necessarily. Children may no longer considered children of the marriage based on their actions and efforts from the time they complete highschool until the decide to attend college. Many factors are involved. What if your child finally enrolled in college at the age of 26? 29? Perhaps he applies every year and doesn't get accepted until age 35? Would you be reponsible for contributing to his post-secondary education expenses then? The line must be drawn somewhere.

There are quite a few cases out there that deal with this kind of issue. I suggest searching CanLII to see what you can find, or LV may be able to dig some good ones up for you
