Continued from Part 1
So you will recall from Part 1, that one’s child support obligation does not necessarily end when a child turns 18. Nor does the obligation necessarily end once the adult-child has obtained one post-secondary degree, diploma or certificate.
How about if the adult-child neither has nor wants anything to do with the ‘payor’ parent? Surely, the estranged parent should not be required to continue subsidizing the child’s ongoing education? Surely, the parent should not have to pay ongoing Guideline table support? Right?
