Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello Everett, thank you for the question. It's a good one. Whether support continues past 18 depends on two things:
1) What the child doing, and
2) What mechanism or laws have determined the support.
So, tell me what the child is doing. College? Full time?
What calls for support? Is it an order or a separation agreement or something else?
Support can stop at age 18, but in some circumstances it can continue, and often will past 18 if the child under some circumstances.
I'll be around the website on and off. If you want to reply to me when you know more that's perfectly fine.
This sounds familiar. We discussed this situation, didn't we Everett?
Yes, absolutely. If you are discussing this with your daughter, feel free to reply to me.
As I recall I suggested it's quite possible that father told mother he wouldn't object to her move if she agreed to only $500 in support. You need to get to the bottom of that.
I'll be here.
That's fine. Don't reply to me until you're ready to talk, or else the site will bug me that this question thread is waiting for me.
But you also just said that father offered the $500 "with no strings attached", does that mean she committed to not seeking more? When you talk to her honestly, let me know and I'll tell you what I think.
You're welcome. Don't reply until you're ready to proceed, right?
No problem, Everett. I don't care if you share your account information with her and she continues this question thread.
She should know that if she starts a new thread then the site will charge your credit card (if that's how you paid) another deposit fee. Make sure she knows to look up your open questions on your account, to click on this one, and continue in your place.
