UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello Clare. the Original order was made
23rd January 2006 . Clause 3 discusses the maintenance which should be paid in relation to children age up to the age of 18 and over if in full time (tertiary) education.
The Order was originally made for three children; 2 oldest have exceeded the age and now left the university education. It is the last child who intends to go to university next month.
Therefore I believe that the order is still "active" because no absolute end date is stated. It could either end now as she is aged 18 or three years from now, - June 2014
The Attachment to Earnings order was made for arrears of 2 children and the payments for arrears element finish November 2011. The ongoing maintenance is also in the attachment to earnings order in favour of the mother, who mis-manages her financial affairs.
I hope this answers your questions.
We don't know that - We have been unable to gain any information regarding course, uni or any other arrangements - not of want for trying. Does this matter?
As an aside we have been unable to gain any confirmation or evidence that she is indeed going to Uni - therefore the order may have finished already
It is only hearsay that the youngest is going to University. Coulld a family law judge order the Mother to provide regular evidence of attendance at a university studying a qualifying course - Termly?
Not termly no - but evidence each september would not be unreasonable
