My guess is your order says something about paying child support until child is 21 as long as they are a full time student.

I am also guessing your kid enrolled in some sort of 2 year program after high school, and completed that program in April.
You then filed to end CS as you figured child was done. Or maybe you had a suspicion they werent but decided to jump the gun anyways.
Child then decided to continue their education and enrolled in new program/degree/whatever and began school in September. Mom contacted you and said HEY! Kid is still in school, you still have to pay.

Summary: you still have to pay.

Thats what it reads word for word? If so, thats very poorly worded... when was your agreement written that it states the child is 18 years of age? and if the child was 18 and not in school when you signed the agreement then how do you have arrears?

Its really hard for anyone to give you actual helpful advice when the details provided make no sense...

Both conditions must be true for child support to end.

If child is in school full time, then child support does not end.

Child did finish 2yr program
Mother didnt notify and no word on anything
Please understand we arent here to say not to pay
If in school ...yes of course
Never missed a payment why now?
However I have no proof of full time attendance
No grades .No new registration
Completely out of the information on this
And when asked. No reply.
If support continues no issue in doing so.
Sadly I meet all requirements always and when asked no responses.

This has been handed over to a lawyer and clearly a,court issue..unfortunately

There are a lot of programs that are only two years which does not lead to a diploma or degree. Regardless of your agreement, a judge will still order support paid until the child has an education that completes a degree. From the sounds of it you dont even know what the childs education or program is so it was very bold of you to try to stop support.

Added to that, just because you sent forms to FRO does not mean it stops. The form is sent to the recipient to confirm the child is not in school. Just because the ex ignored the form doesnt mean you simply stop. You still pay until they say stop.

I caution you now that you may also be on the hook for school expenses too. Prepare yourself for that.

Totally aware of the program and what school

The course details and all.

They said the support didnt need to be paid
Those where the words from them.
I have been however putting the funds aside so I'm good.

We shall see where it falls.

Not a parent who doesbt pay.

There are some conditions where CS will not be paid:

1.

Child is residing with parent, so this condition is not met.

2.

Child must be both over 18 and not in full time attendance. Child is over 18, but is in full time attendance, so this condition is not met.

Since neither condition for ending CS has been met, you must continue to pay child support.
