Thank you for your response.
You really do need to find out what type of course it is that your son is undertaking at college.
Under UK law Child Maintenance is payable until your son turns 20 or enters advanced education. A course equivalent to A levels is not advanced education but further education. A university equivalent course would be classed advanced education.
If his course is now advanced and you are paying maintenance under the CMS then your liability ends the September he starts.
The mother will also stop receiving child benefit when he starts advanced education.
Kind Regards
Please rate positively - happy to discuss further.
