Committee taking another look at emancipation law

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Child Custody and Support Advisory Committee meets Tuesday to discuss the law passed during the 2012 legislative session that reduced the age of emancipation to 19 for child support purposes.

Senate Enrolled Act 18 changed the emancipation age from 21 to 19 and has led to questions as to whether children could be treated differently by the courts depending on whether their parents were ever married.

There are concerns that if children of divorce don’t file for a petition for educational support before they turn 19, despite when their child support orders were issued, they may not be able to receive the support.

According to its agenda, the committee will also consider Preliminary Draft 3246 on educational child support and other business.  It meets at 10 a.m. in Room 233 of the Statehouse.

The Probate Code Study Commission meeting will meet at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in Room 404 of the Statehouse. The commission will consider the 2013 legislative proposals from the Probate, Trust and Real Property Section of the Indiana State Bar Association.

The Criminal Law and Sentencing Policy Study Committee meets at 10 a.m. Thursday in Room 233. An agenda for the meeting was not posted by IL deadline. The Criminal Code Evaluation Commission meets at 1 p.m. in Room 431 and will look at protected zones, probation issues and hear public testimony.

  1. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
