Default child support question child turning 18

My son will turn 18 on Feb 27th of this year. I was told that SC passed a law stating if the child turn 19 after June of 2008 while attending high school child support will continue. While visiting the clerk of court office today they informed me that my child support will end on my son's birthday. I was told if my child support was through the Department of Social Service office it would continue but since I hired my own private attorney it would stop. I thought this was a bunch of bull. My son father and I never married I just saved money until I was able to afford an attorney. My bank account is low at the moment due to my brother tragic death. If anyone can help please tell me what to do. Time is running out. I can’t turn my case over to D.S.S because it takes 90 days. My son birthday will be here soon

DSS usually gets involved if the mother (or father) is on public assistance or if it is a special needs child.. Other than that you pay the clerk of court.. Unless you kid is A.... going to college... B.... The dad is behind on payments... or C .... is a special needs child then as of the 18th birthday the payments stop.... If a child joins the military or goes to jail before the 18th birthday the money stops. The father is also required to provide the child with medical insurance until the 18th birthday as well....

here's an order that was establish in june 2008


Here is what I found online!!! I'm confused because child support officer said it only applies to D.S.S cases since my can is not then it doesn't apply. I read and reread the law it doesn't states that.
Child support obligation up to and beyond age eighteen

SECTION 7. Section 20-7-420(17) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 287 of 1996, is further amended to read:

"(17) To make all orders for support run until further order of the court, except that orders for child support run until the child is eighteen years of age or until the child is married or becomes self-supporting, as determined by the court, whichever occurs first; or without further order, past the age of eighteen years if the child is enrolled and still attending high school, not to exceed high school graduation or the end of the school year after the child reaches nineteen years of age, whichever is later; or in accordance with a preexisting agreement or order to provide for child support past the age of eighteen years; or in the discretion of the court, to provide for child support past age eighteen where there are physical or mental disabilities of the child or other exceptional circumstances that warrant the continuation of child support beyond age eighteen for as long as the physical or mental disabilities or exceptional circumstances continue."

Time effective

SECTION 8. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor. The State Disbursement Unit is to be implemented in accordance with Section 20-7-1300 and Section 20-7-1310 as contained in SECTION 3 of this act.

Ratified the 5th day of June, 2008.

Approved the 11th day of June, 2008.

I don't know, but I wanted to tell you that I'm sorry about your brother. My only brother died 10 years ago next month, and it was so difficult. I hope time brings you peace.

My husband's daughter turned 18 in December. However, the court told him that he had to pay until she graduated, which is fine by us because we want to support her until graduation. My husband must go in to HCC two weeks prior to graduation to fill out paperwork to stop child support. My stepdaughter went to the Academy of Arts & Science, so she will not be attending tech or college after graduation.

The court does not automatically stop child support. You must fill out this paperwork. We have never used a private attorney, mainly because my husband's ex wife went through DSS.

Glad things worked out for you. I think that children should be supported until graduation whether they are 18 yrs. old or not. Just because a child turns 18 in the middle of the school year, child support should not be stopped until graduation.
