I live in Kentucky and my husband has a child that will be 18 next year. She will graduate in 2008. She will not turn 18 until about 5 months after graduation. I know we will have to pay until she is 18. Then will he have to go to court to stop the support or does it stop automatically?

What does the support order say?

It only says the amount he has to pay in accordance with Kentucky child support guidelines. It doesn't say how long he has to pay.

---> You will have to file in advance...at least three months because the process takes awhile.

He will have to pay till she graduates or turns 18 whichever comes later , if he pays through DSC , call them and ask if it stops automatically .

That's what I would think. If it's a garnishment, he would need to contact the correct office; if he sends CS directly, I wouldn't think another trip to court wouldn't be necessary, since KY guidelines clearly state when CS ends, and that is what the CS order stipulates.

Maybe some states require a court order to enforce a court order, but I think it's stupid, JMHO. The burden to extend CS beyond CO or statutes should be on the payee.

KY statutes terminate CS when the child is 18 or 19 if still in high school. But since not specificially spelled out in your order, you MAY need to actually have the court end the CS. If you go through CSE though, they can tell you. Sometimes they will automatically end it, or end it once you bring it to their attention.

But if it's 18 or 19 - if still in H.S., can't the "child's" status be determined by the parent(s)?
And if it goes through CSE and they can end it, how is it they have any more authority to determine status, than a parent who knows if their child is in H.S., 18, or 19, yet has to go to court for the same consensus?

Status can be determined by anyone. But court orders can't be. So unless the state, or order, allows for automatic termination, it won't matter what the status is. The court would still have to terminate the order. Often it's just a way for the court to grab another court fee from people.

" So unless the state, or order, allows for automatic termination, it won't matter what the status is."

But in this case, the order says that termination is based on KY statutes. If the dependent is no longer a dependent (based on KY statutes), what else needs to be done, unless CSE or garnishment is involved?
