If she isn't in school by end of September and is working full time you can go to Family Court or get forms on line from the Family Court and file a petiton

why not ck your divorce papers and parenting plan..are you behind in any payments? As, a good parent, try to get her to go back to school. CS is a small price to pay to invest in your daughters future.

Unless the order stated otherwise, it will end automatically when your daughter is 21. If she were in college and finishes earlier than this, then you will stop paying when she is out of college. You may need to look at the agreement to see if there were other provisions.

Alrighty, then, if you are not making up any back CS payments and nothing more is in the D decree...call your attorney, so he can write a $100 letter to the EX and be on your way. Plz put a little something back each month for your daughter in the case she ever needs you, what a Good Dad you must be. Good Luck.
