My ex and I divorced in 2010. Our separation consent and child custody/support agreement, which were part of our separation agreement was finalized through the courts in 2009. It stipulated that I pay $800 per month along with health and dental insurance until my children turned 18. We would both also be responsible to split all college expenses. They moved to NY with their father while I remained in NC until last Sept when I moved to Georgia. My children are now 19 and 21. Because my ex is a bully and threatened to throw my kids out of his house unless I paid him child support, I have continued to pay him. I’ve also paid for car expenses that were not in our agreement. My oldest will be 22 in July. My ex is asking for more money but I am refusing. He’s threatening to take me through the NY courts saying they award child support until age 21 or when the child finishes college. Both of my sons are full time college students. I’m tired of being bullied and want to know whether our consent agreement would be upheld or could he be awarded child support until they finish school? There has been no substantial vhange in our circumstances. He’s basing his threat on the age in NY state.
I took him back to court in 2010 for contempt due to alienation of my children. The court ordered any modifications must go through Harnett co. Given we both live out of state, does that no longer apply? Thank you for your help!
