Final year paying CSA

New Member Registered

Hi guys,just joined and hope everyone coping ok? 
I’ve been paying for my kids for the last 12 years without any contact…due to the mother!

im sure some can relate!

I phoned CSA to say the youngest child will be leaving education in June this year,the CSA told me I will need to keep paying until September as this is when child benefit will stop?

I thought once the child leaves education you stop paying? She will be 18 this November!

any help much appreciated 🥰

My son has just told me he has his last A level exam in May 2023 he is 18, I am now confused as to when my CMS payments stop because his mum is saying September.

I think she is correct - even though his last exam is May, I think the way it works is that he is still in full time education until he gets his results.
