Quoting Crystal Marie S.:" No you're not overreacting! She's living with you, there's absolutely no need to supply the Mother with ... [snip!] ... with money. It's like it's alimony now or something, not child support, because it obviously isn't going to support the child."well my step son still lives with the mom so it is going still to one child. My husbands view on it is once his daughter graduates support will just be restarted.
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" The 18 year old can get a job and take your ex to court for non-payment of child support"
Quoting aperkins:" Thats my view on it. But the last time I talked to my hsuband about it he said to call and see what it ... [snip!] ... he doesnt want to deal with it and when I've tried to talk to him about the letters he says he doesnt want to talk about it."he doesn't want to deal with it...? sounds pretty smurffy to me. he needs to start just paying half of the child support if only one kid lives with her. and if she has a problem with it, tell her to take him to court since the 18 year old is living with you. and if i'm not mistaken, i think child support stops once you're 18 doesn't it?

Quoting aperkins:" Thats what we thought. But when I called I was told child support stops at the age of 19. I'm just not ... [snip!] ... to to bring it back up to him. But I know I want to talk to him about it again. I just dont want to fight and get stressed out"here's an idea...
Quoting aperkins:" Thats true. I think I'll talk to him about it again tonight cause even tho all our bills are paid and ... [snip!] ... bugging me. I have thought of typing up the letters and printing them and then having him drop them off at the court house."that's EXACTLY what i do. if you just do all the work for him, there's not much required on his part except to follow through.
Quoting aperkins:" Sadly I dont thinks she used the money to support the kids anyway. And honestly I think if we stop support ... [snip!] ... no intention to go to college right away. And my step son wants to move in now but decided he will wait to he turns 18 as well"don't STOP support altogether, it just needs to be less than what you're paying now.
