I have 3 children with my ex-wife and pay monthly child support directly to her as part of the separation agreement. My understanding is that this a contract. My oldest daughter turned 18 in September 2009, at which point I discontinued child support for her in the amount of 1/3 less. I still pay support for my other children. My ex-wife contends that since she still carries her on her NC State Employees health insurance plan that I should still pay support. Her insurance is the same for 3 children as it is for 2, or 1. Should I still be paying support for my oldest daughter? Have I been breaking a contract?
Second, the divorce agreement provides for reasonable visitation rights and certain holidays. My 2 youngest children participate in high school activities that preclude visitation, which I agree with; however, they have certain weekends free. My ex-wife is currently denying my, and their, visitation rights as punishment for them being disrespectful to her AND not helping enough around the house.
What is your opinion.
