We see this so often, maintenance is used by the ex personally and not for what it was meant for. You are only obliged to pay maintenance until such time as your child is self supporting. Whether your child is sel supporting can be established by communicating with the child and gathering of the facts, i.e income, expenses etc. Secondly, any maintenance payments to a child who attained the age of 18 years, should be made directly to the child and not to the parent.
