I live in Georgia ex lives in Florida. Florida turned the case over to Georgia several years ago. I have completely paid all child support payments from when Georgia took over the youngest child turned 18 in Jan and future support stoped. Georgia child support service told me they have sent two letters to Florida child support services for a up to date back child support owed because Florida services have been getting my full income taxes for 8 years now. Florida has yet to provied any information to georgia. The worker told me they have until May 4, 2012 to reply if not Georgia will close the case. She did warn me that Florida could ask Georgia to reopen the case if Florida laws state they can. She said she didn't know what Florida laws were. What are Florida laws on that? Can they ?
You should be contacting an attorney in Florida to determine if Florida law can be used to seek child support beyond age 18. Georgia does not do so, except if the child is still in high school.
I am exclusively a family law attorney, practicing primarily in the metro Atlanta, Georgia trial courts. However, I handle appeals from anywhere in Georgia.
You need to re-post your question. This time, when it asks where you are, list your location as if you live in Florida (instead of Rome, GA). That will cause your question to be directed to FL attorneys.
The above answer is a general explanation of legal rights and procedures. It does not constitute legal advice. Nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship between the individual posting the question and the attorney providing the answer.
