New Law Extends Child Support For Adults With Developmental Disabilities

Posted On: October 18, 2021

Some long over due help for parents and families with adult children with disabilities...

State lawmakers are cheering the final approval of a new law that will allow the parents of adults with developmental disabilities to continue to receive child support payments. 

The measure approved this month by Gov. Kathy Hochul allows parents of children with developmental disabilities to petition courts to receive support payments until their child is 26 -- providing expanded years of support for families. 

“This critical, common-sense piece of bi-partisan legislation will help the custodial parents of dependent adult-age children with disabilities support and provide for their families,” said Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, who sponsored the bill alongside Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh. “The needs of children with disabilities extend beyond the age of majority, and child support payments can be a lifeline for custodial parents to care for and meet the needs of their children.

For some this may be a new idea, but this is something I have spoken about before.  The way a couple communicates, and more importantly, the way a couple handles conflict and/or “arguments” reveals a tremendous amount about their relationship.  If you take the time to look or self-examine, you can improve resolution to conflict or argument. 

This article discusses and examines 5 different “styles” of fighting between couples.  It's a good read and I'm sure you will be able to identify yourself in these styles.

Remember, if you find that you are not happy with the communication level or the health of your relationship, you can always seek out a family specialist, like our professionals from the Collaborative Divorce Professionals.  We are trained to help couples figure out the problems of their communication and to learn tools for better communication and healthier relationships.
