Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.

You’re normally expected to pay child maintenance until your child is 16, or until they’re 20 if they’re in school or college full time doing A-levels, Highers or Equivalent.

So if your daughter is studying any of those, then the father must continue support until she is 20.
