my stepdaughter just turned 17. she will turn 18 mid-feb of 2010. she does not live with her mother, though we continue to send her child support check to the mother. (the mother requested we send the checks to her mother, SD maternal grandmother, but we said only if you send us the request in writing, which she did not do) the order for support says to send the money directly to SD when she turns 18, but then, how do i know when to stop altogether? when she finishes HS? when she's 21? the court order doesnt say!Answer Question

In Ohio it ends when they turn 18 unless they are still in an accredited high school then it goes until they graduate.

All states are different on legal age. If she wants to go to college she can make you pay for it -but- she will have to get a lawyer and the child would have to be enrolled and currently going. Then it is based on BOTH parties income on what you will have to pay. Like if she makes more money and he don't then it would be like 80-20, 80% for her to pay and 20% for him and so forth. They base it on the highest best colleges near to you. If there is back child support IRS will get your tax return and send it to her but you will still pay after the legal age untill its over. I would go to child support recovery and tell them you want to pay through them to settle the other matter and they will figure it up and then you'll know and have proff. She also will have to be making good grades in school at the time. Save all recipts or she can make you pay it again, All $22,000.of it!! CRAZY B****!!! Sorry been through hell!
