This was a tough case because the child was still in high school and even when she graduated, she would be 17 years old. So, besides not being sure if the child was going to college, the client’s emancipation motion was rather premature. Nevertheless, he still filed it and had a court date that he set up by himself. A few weeks before his emancipation was heard, he hired out Cumberland County Child Support Attorneys. We fixed his motion papers and went to court ready for a battle. Our attorneys successfully got a court order that emancipated the child as of her 18th birthday. Since court’s don’t like to issue advisory opinions, this was a great victory because the client doesn’t have to come back to court after the child turns 18.
