My daughter (never married to the mother) is turning 21 this weekend and is still in a city college in NY ( tuition fully paid by grants etc). No mention of any support termination age or college payments in the support order which has been effect. No issues on payment of support - direct payment to the mother has been made on time with nothing owed.
My daughter also has a part time ( and for 8 months full time) job in the school system and earns a nice wage. She is not a dependent on her mother's taxes ( actually the mother does not file) she files on her own.
I am planning to go to the court to file for a termination of support but the mother tells me I have to pay the support until she graduates college next June. She seems to think I have to pay support if my daughter wants to go to graduate school too - is this true? I will help my daughter when I can but I thought the age was 21 in NY and since my daughter earns a nice sum of money each month, she could support herself - actually she helps support her mother not the other way around.
Any thoughts on how to approach this legally - does anyone think I will have any trouble stopping support? Do I have to pay until she graduates? What about Grad school?
Appreciate all help
