Petitioner/Defendant-Appellant/Appellee Aldo Macapal Jaylo (Father) filed an Application for Writ of Certiorari seeking review of the March 30, 2011 judgment of the ICA, filed pursuant to its February 8, 2011 Opinion. The ICA affirmed the Family Court of the First Circuit’s (family court) July 19, 2006 Order, which reestablished child support for the parties’ adult disabled child who was over the age of twenty-three.
On appeal, Father argues that the family court does not have authority to order payment of child support for a child over the age of twenty-three. The issue on appeal is whether the finding of “exceptional circumstances” alters the criteria governing eligibility for child support.
