advice on divorceQuestion:

Per our divorce decree and state child support laws, my child support payments end when our child reaches the age of 18 or when he graduates from high school, whichever occurs last.

My child has already reached 18 and has already finished his course work to complete high school, yet he doesn't actually participate in his high school graduation ceremony until this summer when the rest of his class graduates.

So should my child support terminate when he actually completes all of his course work or must I continue paying until this summer when he walks across the stage and physically is awarded his diploma?

advice on divorceQuestion:

I am trying to modify my payments of child support arrears.

I do owe the money and intend to pay it back, but the amount being garnished is too high for me to survive on.

When trying to modify the child support amount, the child support enforcement unit said I am unable to modify the amount because my child is an adult and considered emancipated.

Is this true? How can I lower my monthly child support arrears obligation?

divorce lawyer Daniel LambertQuestion:

I need information on what state has jurisdiction for my child support modification.

My ex-wife and kids moved to the state I previously moved to (Wisconsin) after our divorce was finalized in Illinois. Our divorce decree states my child support payments are contingent upon my ex-wife selling the marital home. Well, she just left the home, let it go into foreclosure, and recently bought a home in Wisconsin; these actions should allow me to modify my support.

Will I have to file for the child support modification in Illinois, where the divorce was finalized and where the marital home was located, or can I file in Wisconsin where all the parties now live?

Houston Divorce LawyerQuestion:

Do child support laws allow my to modify my child support payments if my child now lives with me full-time?

We recently won a child custody modification case where my daughter now resides with me permanently. However, I was told by my state's Attorney General office that I had to wait 6 months until they will review modifying my child support.

Will I have to continue paying my ex-wife child support for at least 6 more months even though our child lives exclusively with me?

divorce lawyer Daniel LambertQuestion:

I pay child support and would like to know the child support laws concerning paying support to a child who is married.

I am not in arrears and my child just got married at age 18, but I'm scheduled to pay child support for another year.

Am I still required to pay child support to my ex-wife if my child is now married?
