Single mom of two boys 15 and 17.
It would be wise to contact your attorney that handled the family case in which child support was ordered. They will be in the best position to determine what, if any, action needs to be taken.
That’s not how it works. As soon as the child knows where he will be going to school and the costs, file a motion for contribution to higher educational expenses. I suggest you use a family law attorney to represent you. The father is still responsible for child support until he is 18 and graduates from high school. Depending on the costs, you can decide which way you will get the most money until your son is 18.
My answer does not create an attorney-client relationship. My answer is for general information only per the AVVO guidelines.
