my ex is paying threw the DOR . it comes out of his check . as long as the child is in college he is to pay until she is like 25 i think .
sorry no her mother is keeping the child support . kaitlynn moved in with me 3 months ago and her mother has been keeping the money .the money goes directly to kathy the mother .
my x has an agreement with the DOR to have 100 taken from his paycheck weekly. the check goes to the mother . the mother lives out of state and her daughter is now living with me . i am the step mother . me and my husband separed like 6 years ago . so he lives in the same state as i do and now his daughter who is now 19 . she just graduated from high school and is enrolling in college in the spring . so we need to change the child support over into the childs name . that way she will get the money . but the mother is refusing to give her the child support until she is in college .
so if the child is now an adult and is no longer living with the parent . the parent still gets the money ?
i am not sure if the agreement says to the parent . under mass law i thought that child sup is to be paid if the child is in college up to a certain age .
