I have a child who will be 18 this year. I understand that child support payments continue until the child is either emancipated or 21. Does out of pocket medical reimbursement also continue until emancipation or age of 21?
Your child support order is a bundle of obligations which end at 21. Nothing can be unbundled and forget that your child is an adult at 18. For purposes of child support in New York, that age out is 21.
If you can get the custodial parent to agree otherwise in a court proceeding, then this can change. Most custodial parents do not know that they control the order of support as well as all the payments for the various charges. The custodial parent also control arrears.
If you are seeking justice in a child support court, you are mistaken. Seek justice form the custodial parent and you will do better. You may also consider leaving the state. New York is the nation's favorite state to leave.
