Child Support After 18:
Child support after kids turn 18 and...
My son will be 18 in October and I have full custody.
His father is in arrears over $10,000.
Will he still have to pay off the arrears? If so how much?
Answer to Florida Child Support Question
Yes, your ex still owes the entire arrears.
You also may be able to extend the ongoing payments after your son turns 18; if he is still in high school.
If your ex has the ability to pay support and is avoiding payment you may be able to have the Department of Revenue file a Motion for Contempt in your behalf.
At the court hearing the judge may order a purge amount that the noncustodial parent must pay immediately to avoid going to jail.
