I'm sorry but there really isn't any applications you can make in respect of this. The trouble you have is that your daughter is 16 and does not live with you. If she were living with you then you might have been able to apply for CSA in certain circumstances but with the 16 year old and the 18 year old living together without their they are no longer dependents.
I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions.
No I'm afraid it doesn't. The fact is she is 16 and is not living with either parent so you cannot make any claims on her behalf. If they lived with you then you could claim CSA but they do not live with you so you cannot.
