My attorney said at 14 my children can decide for themselves

In my divorce decree completed back in 2000. My son is

In my divorce decree completed back in 2000. My son is turning 18 this year in MAy and in the paperwork it says. I should pay until "child reaches the age of Eighteen except that a child becomes 18 years of age while enrolled in and attending a secondary School on a full time basis, then such support shall continue until the child completes secondary school, provided that such support shall not be required after the child attains 22 years of age."I thought that secondary school is considered high school and post-secondary school is College. So what does the state of Georgia define as "secondary School"?Thanks for your timeDerek West ***@******.***

My daughter live with her mentally abusive and unstable mom.

My daughter live with her mentally abusive and unstable mom. Im preparing to go to court to change her living arrangements to come live with me and reverse child support. Her mom has been trying to throw her out to live with me but pretending its all my daughters choice. She even called the old lawguardian to manipulate her against my daughter, and my daughter said it seemed to work, because she called the law guardian and she was siding with her mother. Very bad, her mom is very good at lying and manipulating people and covering her own bad behavior. Does the law guardian have any involvement at this point? Shes 19? I don't want my daughter to move in with me until we are in court because the mom will accuse her of leaving on her own, as if she emancipated herself, because the mom doesn't want to pay child support. My agreement says emancipation is 21 and my daughter is a full time college student only works 10 hours a week. What can I do and what about this law guardian? Does law guardian even play a part at this point?
