She did not enroll in college - barely passed high school. Is 18 yrs old. No drivers license (can't pass test!), No job - doing nothing. Do we still have to pay? If so, to Mom or to child? Court hearing coming in a few weeks because Mom still wants $. She can vote, drive (if test passed), and hold a job...but hasn't put forth any effort. Do we have to monetarily support this? Mom did not notify us that "child" didn't enroll in college...she graduated early so there seems to be a grey area regarding MO Oct 1st deadline for college enrollment? Stopped child support EFT's into Mom's account upon filling out form for termination of support, but they are going into a savings account with daughters name until a judge hears case.

You may have to wait until the judge hears your case. If your child is not enrolled in any school of higher education (college, trade school or the like) it sounds as if your child support should terminate. That being said, my answer is only based on the few facts outlined in your question. There may be other issues that would make your child still eligible for child support. You would need to consult an attorney about these intervening factors.
