Hi, thank you for your question. Are you able to attach a copy of the consent order for my consideration using the paperclip icon?
Thank you for confirming - how old is your youngest child?
Thanks for confirming. I will assist based solely on the information you have provided. It will depend on whether the college course is viewed as secondary education or not and whether there is anything in the order stating that it is dependant on your son residing with you.
In relation to the child maintenance, this will be the same - however, as the settlement was made by consent, 12 months after the date of the order he would be able to apply to the child maintenance service for a calculation and their calculation will supersede what is in the order - evidently if your son is residing with the father, then the father will no longer be liable for child maintenance to you as this would be for the benefit of your son.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
