You granddaughter is in a fairly unique situation as she is about to embark on a course of what is called advanced education. That means the child support laws have no jurisdiction any longer but the 1985 Act doesn't yet apply either. The answer is that your granddaughter can make a court application for aliment under section 1(1)(c) of the 1985 Act even before she is 18. She falls within the definition of 1(5)(a) of the Act and can go to court because the CSA no longer has jurisdiction. Happy to discuss. I hope that helps.
