I am looking for some advice, not sure where to turn with this other than the legal route I suppose. My daughter who has just turned 20 has autism and learning difficulties. Her father left when she was two and I have re married. Her dad has paid some maintenance since then through the CMS, albeit not always the correct amount. I have now received a letter saying this will stop now my daughter is 20.
My daughter goes to college 3 days a week, lives with me and is unlikely to ever hold down a job after college so will always be reliant on me. I pay for transport, taxis, two days per week at a day centre as well as food, clothing, personal care etc.
Is there any way for me to continue getting some maintenance payments from her dad. It seems unfair that he can just walk away from his responsibilities to her again now that she is 20.
