    Am in a similar position - my income will plummet when my daughter finishes her A levels this summer. Maintenance and tax credits will pretty much cease but of course i will still be supporting her I expect as a job immediately seems unlikely and she is hoping for uni the following year but will still require a fair bit of assistance. Am trying to not to panic to much.

    missing 'o' for those who care :)
  3. Similar situation. Ex agreed to contribute until children leave full time education. This year eldest is at university. We have agreed that the support ex pays is effectively split into 4. Currently eldest gets one quarter and I receive 3/4 as youngest is still at home. When youngest goes to uni, he will get 1/4 ( eldest will still be there so will get his quarter!) and I will get 1/2 to continue paying towards household bills ( as he considers it is still their home ). As children leave uni, their contribution stops. When both leave, all contributions cease!
