Child Support In Plainview New York
My ex and I were divorced in CA in 1997 evening though I've lived with the children here in NY since 1995 (he was in the military and that was where he was stationed). A child support order was put in place by CA at that time, but in 2000 he took me back to court in CA and had the order vacated because he retired from the military. In 2002 I filed a petition in Suffolk County Court in NY (where my children have always lived) seeking child support since I was receiving no support from him for 2 years and he had now moved to Florida.
An order was issued by the NY courts in 2002. My ex is now bringing me back to court in NY stating that child support for the children should have stopped when they turned 18 because the original child support order was in CA and child support stops at 18 or 19 in that state. I say the order is in NY and child support goes until the age of 21. Who is correct? Our children are 19 and 21 and both full time college students.
