Fulltime education is generally non advanced education.
Non-advanced education is generally classed as a level, not University, but
there are some further education courses which are not classed as advanced.
Full-time courses can be as little as 12 hours per
courses include: a degree, Diploma
of Higher Education (DHE), NVQ level 4 or above, BTEC Higher National
Certificate (HNC) or Higher National Diploma (HND), teacher training
the following: GCSEs, A levels
NVQ/SVQ level 1, 2 or 3, BTEC National Diploma, National Certificate and 1st
Diploma, SCE higher grade or similar
If this was CSA it would finish at 20 or end of full time education (it used to
be 19) to take account of the fact that children go to uni.
After that age the child can make a
children's act application to claim support from both parents while at uni.
My suggestion would be to get yr solicitor to write to her telling her that under the
terms of the court order, maintenance was payable until aged 18 or until your
child left full-time education.
As the child has now left full-time education and is it going to
attend university, from now on, you will pay the money directly to the child.
It should head off her rushing to court although there is no longer any legal
aid for this and she may think twice if she has to pay the legal costs
Whatever you do, don't simply stop without warning.
Does that answer the question?
