Hi, thank you for your question. Was the financial order in the divorce made by consent? Is your daughter now living in your care?
Thanks for confirming. It would appear that as she has now finished full time education your liability under the order has ended. If you wished to provide your daughter any financial assistance now, this will be entirely voluntary. If your daughter were to return to education before the age of 20 and study A-Levels or equivalent, or attend a government approved training course, and she continues to reside with the mother, the mother will be entitled to submit an application to the Child Maintenance Service.
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.
Unless a formal application has been submitted to the Child Maintenance Service, the court order takes precedence.
Thank you - I hope it goes well. If you have any questions in the future you can ask for me directly by starting your question For Harris
