Child Support In Georgia
by Jane Arrington
I live in Georgia. My child support order was signed in 1995. It states shall receive until 18, marries, becomes emancipated whichever comes first. My child turned 18 December 2009, a full time high school student and graduated in May 2010. OCSE advised me that in the state of Georgia I am entitled until she graduates since she is a full-time student. I was also told since my order was signed after 1992 that I was grandfathered into the new 2007 CS laws that says until she graduates HS. Can you please shed some light as to when it ends? I was unable to get a modification to change ending date because father was in another country and has been non-existent for 18 years.
