Greetings Kenneth Vercammen

1. School Principal can search vehicle on school grounds. State v. Best 201 NJ 100(2010)A school administrator need only satisfy the lesser reasonable grounds standard rather than the probable cause standard to search a student's vehicle parked on school property

2.Termination of Child Support after High school graduation and upon EmancipationChild support is usually paid through a wage withholding garnishment at the parent'sjob. Child support orders and wage withholding continue forever against you untila Superior Court Judge signs a Formal Court Order terminating or modifying support.It is not sufficient for the payor to simply wait for a child to finish school. Many Divorce decrees and Property Settlement Agreements state that child support will end upon emancipation. For example, the term "emancipation" is sometimes definedas follows: (i) The completion of the child's formal education on a matriculated basis, whether it be graduation from a four year undergraduate school or high school,it being understood that so long as the child is diligently pursuing his formal education through a four year undergraduate college education and obtaining passinggrades the child shall not be considered emancipated. (ii) Upon the completion ofany of the aforesaid segments of the child's education, and upon the failure to commence the next segment of his education, or upon leaving school, the child shallbe deemed emancipated unless failure to continue on with his education has resultedfrom injury or illness or some other cause beyond the child's control. (iii) The marriage of the child. (iv) Entry into the military or armed forces by the child.Your attorney can draft the appropriate Motion to terminate child support if the child is emancipated. You will need to provide your attorney with relevant papersincluding a copy of the Final Judgment for Divorce, any other Child Support Orders,copy of birth certificate if available, proof of graduation from school or workingfull time, etc. Sometimes the child support recipient, usually the mother, will sign a Consent Order which your attorney can file without the need for a formal Motion. However, generally a Formal written Notice of Motion must be filed in theCounty Superior Court where the child support Order was entered. The requirementsof the Motion are detailed and must include the correct filing fees. Child supportdoes not end merely if the child reaches 18 and graduates high school. Most childsupport Order continue child support if the child is in college full time. However,don't give up. In the unreported Appellate Division decision of Kozak v Kozak __ NJ Super. __ (App. Div. decided January 9, 2003) the court reduced child supportduring the period of time the child resided at the college campus. The judge properlydetermined it was appropriate to calculate child support only for the period of time the child was not residing at college
