My fiance is paying child support on his 19 year old son who is a senior and does not even have half of the credits that is necessary to graduate.
How long can support go on for? I know that it states until the child is 18 and/or no longer in high school. How long is too long?? Is there guidelines in Harris County Texas to when the support can be stopped? And how long can a school keep him there if he is not showing much progress from year to year? The mother has not kept up on his education and he frequently has unexcused absences. We are finding that she is not supportive and were upset to find out that he only received one credit his sophmore year!! We are trying to get information out of the school but so far no return phone calls! We just receive the emails that we signed up for online through the schools website to his daily grades, attendance and if his grades drop below 60. The ex has stated that she will keep him in high school as long as she gets to collect support. Our concern is that he keeps failing year after year the same subjects that are necessary to graduate.
Any input is greatly appreciated!
