The cost of a child doesn''t suddenly disappear cos they turn 18/19.
You may have made plans but what about the parent housing your child. Maybe she too had plans?? (based on 19 ? as is current??)
Your child is your responsibility whether they are living with you or not... i think its called support....................
I don''t think CSA staff are usually informed of changes until they are imminent. Raising the age of eligibility to 20 years of age has been on the cards since 2008 when the law changed to bring it line with Child Benefit rules. One would hope MPs were aware of legislation passed through Parliament!
It has taken this long to implement the change but it is well documented in consultations, CSA regulations 2012 etc and Wikivorce.
