Report Title: Child Support; Adult Child; Post-high School Education
Description: Requires both parents to pay child support if financial support for a child is ordered by the court and the child no longer resides full-time with the custodial parent. Requires a petition for child support be made prior to the child reaching the age of majority unless there is clear and convincing evidence of hardship. Mandates the suspension of child support payments for an adult child when the child turns nineteen if the custodial parent or adult child fails to provide proof the child is enrolled as a full-time student in school or has been accepted into and plans to attend as a full-time student for the upcoming semester. Establishes that child support payments for an adult child who is pursuing education must be paid directly to the adult child. Determines child support for an adult child pursuing education shall end if the adult child is not enrolled full-time or does not plan to attend full-time the upcoming semester or if the adult child fails to provide the payor with proof of full-time enrollment within fourteen days of the payor's request. Grants payors of child support access to the adult child's enrollment records at post-secondary educational establishments.
