I think CS should be paid until 18 and HS graduation. The only other time I think CS should be continued is if the child is disabled and due to disability must live at home (cannot physically work due to autism, mental handicap, Down's, etc) or in a group home and has out-of-the-ordinary medical-associated costs. Both parents should then be held financially responsible.

I like my state because at the time of my divorce CS went to age 22 as long as enrolled full time in college and making passing grades.

I also admit that for SO, I like his state because it ends at 18 or graduation from HS whichever comes last.

So you feel that it is ok for you to receive support from your ex until your kids are out of college, but that your SO shouldn't do the same for his?

"I like my state because at the time of my divorce CS went to age 22 as long as enrolled full time in college and making passing grades."

So is the CP required to spend a certain amount of money on the kids until they're 22? Say they move out and Dad is still paying support to mom is mom forced to spend money, other than the CS she gets for the kid who doesn't live at home or is it just the NCP who is forced to pony up?

FTR I think 18 if out of school or 18 and graduated if they are still in HS. BM was so mad when the month after SS graduated she didn't get a CS check.
