My husband supports his 15 year old son who lives in Texas. The order was originally issued in New York, but now both parents live in different states (his ex-wife and son in TX, and us in CT). Recently, my husband lost his job, so we have initiated the process to modify the order (the unemployment alone won't cover the monthly payment and I had to take a second job to help with it). We had to do the whole thing in TX because that's were my stepson resides. In TX, the age limit to receive support is 18 (NYS is 21). My question is - in the process of decreasing the amount of money we pay every month - can we also attempt to modify the age limit now that my stepson and mother live in TX? Or does the modification INEVITABLY follow the original determination (21)?
Thanks so much.
