I’m not certain what the timescale is here but child maintenance is payable under the Statutory Guidance from the Child Maintenance Service or the court order.
If it’s full-time nonadvanced education or until 18 and the child has done exams, then child maintenance is payable either until the beginning of September or until the child gets a job.
The school holidays are classed as part of the previous year not the beginning of the following year and that’s why child maintenance is payable after the exams, until the next year at school would have started unless the child gets a job in the interim.
So you are actually only talking however about a couple of months maintenance in any event and if the father lives in the United States the cost of enforcing the extra couple of months child maintenance is going to be more than the amount of money.
What’s extremely relevant therefore is whether your son is going to start work in the summer holidays or whether he is going to go back to full-time nonadvanced education in September. For example, he could be re-sitting some exams.
