Child Support Question (for future reference) ETA (in blue) UPDATE IN GREEN
DS will be 17 this April. He was almost 3 when I filed for CS. Will support stop when he turns 18? The court order does not say back support from the time DS was born to the time I filed. He will be going to college after high school (fall of 2014 is when he will go).
I am looking at my support orders right now. First off, we do not have a parenting plan as I left his bio-dad when I was 4 months pregnant with him. Like I said he was 3 when I filed for support. His bio-dad has never been a part of his life (he lives in Kansas & I live in Ohio)- not once made a trip to come see him or asked that we come there. Our support order state support "commencing October 1, 1999, and each month thereafter until further order of the court." Even when we had modifications it says "until further order of the court".
The support order I have with the divorce decree from my ex H (for our 4 kids) states "The duty of support shall continue until further order of the Court or until the above named children reach the age 18 or so long as the children continuously attend, on a full time basis, amy recognized and accredited high school, however, no later than the age 19, or as otherwise provided in Ohio Revised Code 3119.86" As I understand this- our oldest DD will turn 18 in September 2017. That will be her senior year in high school (she repeated Kindergarten) so her support will end when she graduates.
Okay so this is weird. I came home today to a letter from CSEA stating my child support will stop on 5/4/13 due to reasons on back of paper (back stated child would no longer be a minor & therefore obligation would stop).
Well the issue is- a) it said Obligor was my ex husband & b) I don't have a child aging out! My oldest will be 17 in April & my ex is not his father & my ex is not paying support on him. He didn't adopt him either- there is no support order for my ex to pay suport for my oldest, just our 4 kids.
So, now I have to print out a copy of the info from the website regarding recent payments (the support order number on the letter doesn't even match the support order numbers on their website or any of my paper work), copy my actual support orders, my DS's birth certificate (to show proof of age), & write a nice little letter saying they screwed up & need to correct things.
