What is the name of your state?Missouri
My 17 almost 18 year old step daughter just moved out of her mothers house into her own apartment. We gave her first and last months rent but she does work full time. Have always paid child support, but now when husband calls to get it stopped he is told no he has to pay the mother till child is 19, even if she does live out on her own. This can not possible be correct the child dropped out of school a year ago and has been working full time or close to it since she has just signed with her mother as a co signer a one year lease on a place. We even asked if child support could be sent to the child instead of mother untill she is 18 and were told no. Is there anything we can do about this without spending a fortune that we just do not have. This cant be right to pay child support on a child that does not live with the woman.
