I'm having problem with one of the question

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

When the oldest child turned 18 or graduate high school what amount of support should he get pay

Lawyer's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Family Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

Ok but every amount I put it won't take it

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No that's it

I've reviewed your question and I'm happy to help.

It depends on the what exactly your child support order states.

In most cases, child support stops when the child turns 18 OR finishes high school (in which case child support can be extended until age 19).

Unless your child support order specifically states otherwise, your child support obligation should end at that point.

Meaning that you would pay zero child support from then on.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

hmmmm how long it will take to my divorce to be final
Family Lawyer: Nisha Jones,
 replied 1 month ago

It depends on your particular situation, the division of assets, the division of debts, whether you and your former spouse are in agreement or have disputes over that division, etc.

An uncontested divorce with an already agreed upon division of assets, can be completed within a matter of weeks, whereas a divorce where there is a dispute over assets can span months or even years. So again, it really depends on your situation.

Please take a moment to rate so I can be credited for my time and help with your questions, thanks!
