What is the maximum age for a child to become disabled and still be able to get support from the parents?
Can a child remain NOT emancipated? What is the criteria?
If a adult child receives disability (SSI at this time - SSDI at a later date concurrent with parent's benefits), will a non-custodial parent still be required to pay some sort of child support, e.g. depositing monies into a special needs trust?
What happens to support to the adult disabled child when the non-custodial parent dies? Are non-custodial parents ever ordered to include disabled child in their wills?
Non-custodial parent is wealthy (annual income over $750K), has remarried and has children from the second marriage.
My biggest concern now is date of onset of disability, emancipation and amount of support at this time.
If you want support for a disabled child to continue and the other parent does not agree you will need a good lawyer, especially if he is at that level of income.
