Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. The answer to your question is that you're going to follow the law of the state that issued the order. One thing that you could do is you could file for petition of a modification of You original child support order if you are looking to get the child support extended until you're son graduates college. You would file this action in Missouri and it would be up to the court to decide whether they are going to make that change or honor the original order..
