Customer Question
My daughter turned 21 last...
My daughter turned 21 last year and my ex continued to pay the support. He said it was because she was in college. I called CSU and they said the order was in effect until the youngest child turned 21 he is 17. They ex never filed a downward modification. I feel it was his responsibility not mines. Can he be award an overpayment of support because the order was never adjusted?

He may get credit for future payments as a credit but they will not order you to return any money. The courts generally view any overpayment as a gift.
