Child Support After 18 - California Law
Asked Jan 7, 2008, 08:13 PM
Hi, I am Concerned Father of an 18 year old daughter. She has been living with her mother since she was 7. Although we had JOINT Custody, the mother would not agree to let my daughter live with me at anytime after the divorce in fear of being alone. After 11 years of faithfully paying child support and other necessities and non during her adolescents, I have been asked to continue Child Support in addition Pay for College after she turns 18 while being full or part time student. I am of minimal income, yet steady employ and was looking forward to helping my daughter with her financial needs while attending school, but want to know if it is mandatory or is it a GOOD FATHERLY thing to do?
