This is regarding a post-secondary support where the child makes over $10,000 per year and is not reliant upon parents for support. Tuition is paid already and judge is saying the father has to pay it anyways and the scholarships should go directly to the child.

The court must make certain findings in order to order post-secondary support, one of which is that the child is financially dependent upon the parents. In order to more fully answer your question more facts would be necessary. I would advise you to have a consulation with an experienced family law attorney to review the findings of the court, what they were based upon, and any further action that you may wish to take.
