What information do you need?
1. The divorce was 15yrs ago
2. I have paid maintenance to ex-wife up to and beyond daughter's age 16 and beyond.
3. Daughter finished A-levels but birthday in December means she could not start medical school till next year (according to regulstions). So she has to wait a whole academic year- till next October.
4. Currently she is not working or studying - what happens if she gets a job between now and when she starts university?
5. I am in position to have her stay with me if she wishes or any time during the next year.
6. Monthly payments currently continue to ex-wife but I am asking when I can pay monies directly to my daughter
Under court order
Standard ..... till age 18 if in continuing education. Hence my continuation of payments beyond 16.
Issue here is that she would normally have been in university now but has her admission deferred till next academic year.
My query is what my obligations are within this coming 18th year, particularly if she is not studying or working, and if she chose to stay with mother.
What about if she chose to live elsewhere, apart from mother or with myself?
I do not have document to hand but recall being prepared to pay maintenance till 18 yrs.
Obviously my daughter has continued to 6th form so I have accepted paying till age 18.
Again, the question is what happens after her 18th birthday in December.
Technically she will be 18 so I assume my obligations cease.
I am happy to voluntarily contribute to normal living expenses but do not wish to make any payments to my ex-wife.
I also intend to support her when she starts uni next year and beyond - directly and not via ex-wife.
Just to clarify that ".....ceases full-time education.." refers to education up to 6th form (not several years of university and/or related postgraduate degrees - certainly with respect to payments to be made to mother)
In this case my understanding would be that as of her 18th birthday I would have met my obligations in providing maintenance to the extent of full-time education and up to 18th birthday.
Is that correct?
One final query.
I had major flooding damage to my home some years ago and some boxes with documents were affected.
If my copies of court orders were affected how so I get replacement copies?
