I live in MO where emancipation is 21 if the kid goes to college. My YSD turned 18 recently and she is a SR in High School. She is planning on attending trade school to become a cosmetologist. Does anyone know if we have to pay CS while she is going to a trade school? We paid CS while the oldest went to college- she took the minimum amount of hours to keep the CS going- then as SOON as she turned 21 she dropped out of school and didn't finish. It was already within one year of the YSD turning 18 so the state would not modify the support to reflect one child. Soooo- we will be paying the same amount for one child that we have for two until we emancipate YSD. Also- how does the process work in this state for emancipation?
