Was there court ordered child support and if so, was there a termination date?
Yes, but it was by allotment started. No garnishment nor was child services involved. No end date that I remember on the decree. Very basic form.
OK; Illinois is one of a few states that will require the payment of child support until a termination order is entered.
That form is here
The court does have the ability to order payment of tuition for college but generally they will only do so if the order was initially entered (ie in the original divorce decree).
They will not order retroactive support, as they only have the authority to make an order retroactive to the date it was filed.
