Current Amendment: JUD3400.002.docx to Bill 3400
Senators SHEHEEN and MASSEY proposed the following amendment (JUD3400.002):
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking SECTION 1 of the bill in its entirety and inserting:
/ SECTION 1. Section 63-3-530(A)(17) of the 1976 Code is 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
eighteen years of age or until the child is married or becomes self-supporting, as determined by the court, whichever occurs first
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
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. If child support is being paid through the Clerk of Court and there are no additional minors covered by the current order, the noncustodial parent shall provide written notice to the Clerk of Court that support has terminated pursuant to this subsection and shall include the basis for the automatic termination. If there are additional minors covered by the child support order, the non-custodial parent shall petition the court for a modification in the total support payment. When child support is terminated due to the child turning eighteen years of age, graduating from high school, or reaching the end of the school year when the child is nineteen, no arrearage may be incurred as to that child after the date of the child's eighteenth birthday, the date of the child's graduation from high school, or the last day of the school year when the child is nineteen, whichever date terminated the child support obligation.
