Wow, sounds like you need an attorney, pronto!  In my state (Oregon) child support automatically ends once the child turns 18 UNLESS the child is attending college full time, at which time support terminates once the child turns 21.

@speechgal44:  I doubt that any court would make him pay support to the bio family and the ex. He did however adopt and is obligated to provide support until whatever age the state decides.

That sounds ridiculous!  The kid’s an adult who your DH raised, and somehow the biological family is entitled to child support?

He is an adult now, how can they sue for support?

Get a GOOD lawyer. Family courts have seen a huge increase in self-represented litigants, and it’s disastrous. Lawyers are expensive, yes, but they serve an important purpose. You can usually get referrals and free consults through your local state bar association. Read reviews, and ask family/friends for recommendations.

 

Remember that the justice system is supposed to balance and protect the interests of parties, while a good lawyer will present a case that will best protect YOUR interests.

Geez!  Too bad he can’t just give up his parental rights!

@speechgal44:  Ugh.  I’m sorry that you have to go through this.  Follow what PP said and get a good attorney.  I have dealt with CS issues for 15 years and in in ten days no more!  DH will be officially adopting DD and we will FINALLY be rid of the monkey on our backs.  Sucks to have to hire an attorney but they will do what’s best for you and will take the stress off of you.  Try not to worry about it.  It will resolve itself.

I can MAYBE see paying the bio family- but no way to pay the ex wife.  She doesn’t even have the child anymore!
