Effective July 1, 2015, the law in Virginia will change to expand the ability of the parent of a child who is severely and permanently mentally or physically disabled may file for child support.  Specifically, this legislation will allow the parent of a child who meets certain statutory requirements to file for child support even after the child has reached the age of 18 even if there is no existing child support order, so long as the permanent mental or physical disability existed prior to the child turning 18.  This is a change from the current law, which requires a parent of a mentally or physically disabled child to file for support and obtain a court order prior to the child reaching the age of 18.– Kari Jackson, Associate at Hall & Hall
