I am the custodial parent of an 18yr old who resides in NC. My ex resides in SC, however, my court ordered (not going through child support office) child support paperwork naming me custodial parent and child support guidelines was conducted in GA. The GA paper works states that I am to receive child support until he reaches the age of majority, becomes 18, is self supporting, marries, dies, or no longer resides with me.
He has moved out, still has a year left in high school and won't graduate until he reaches the age of 19. my GA child support paperwork states that support stops "at the age of 19 when he graduates, and shall continue until such time that he is no longer enrolled full time, becomes self supporting, marries, dies, and no longer resides with me or is otherwise emancipated.
If he is living with you and attending HS, child support should continue until graduation or turns 19 or 20 (however the Ga law and your order reads. If he is attending HS but living with the other parent, the order should be amended to have child support flowing from you to I guess, Mom. If he is living with someone else and attending HS, the child support could be paid to the person caring for him and split between you and the other parent in some reasonable fashion
