Adult Child Maintenance deals with the financial obligations that parents may have towards their adult children. Traditionally, child support responsibilities end when the child has reached 18 or completed High School, whichever comes later. However, specific circumstances may necessitate the provision of financial help. For instance, conditions such as a child’s physical or mental difficulties that limit their ability to be self-sufficient may require ongoing assistance.


Furthermore, adult child maintenance may be required if the child is pursuing a tertiary education. Whether finishing high school, pursuing further education, vocational training or an apprenticeship, financial support is often required. Recognising that educational pursuits contribute to the adult child’s ability to build self-esteem and independence Courts often consider the continuation of financial support by considering the parent’s ability to give such support and the overall fairness of the arrangement. This procedure emphasises the necessity of ensuring the adult child’s future well-being and financial stability.
