What becomes of the parenting and custody agreements that suggest/implies they remain in force until the end of high school .i.e.-visitation schedule, holiday schedule, child support etc...Illinois law of course. Thank you.
The child support will continue unless it is modified. Custody and visitation cannot be enforced since the child is a legal adult. If you are paying child support and the child moves in with you then you need to file a motion to terminate the support and custody orders. The orders will continue but an 18 year old has the right to do as they please. Obviously if he chose to join the Army he would not be living at home and would be in the custody of the Army. He has the right to quit high school at 18 so that cannot be enforced. Thanks for using our service.
