The Alabama Supreme Court has overturned Bayliss v. Bayliss, the long-standing case that allowed a party to obtain post-minority support for their children.  In the case of Christopher v. Christopher, the mother sought to obtain post-minority support for one of their children.  She filed a petition to modify before the child’s 19th birthday.  On appeal, the father argued that Alabama law did not provide for post-minority support.  The Alabama Supreme Court agreed with the father and overturned Bayliss on the grounds that it did not follow the law (prior to Bayliss being decided) nor did it comply with the statutory provisions for support.  The Alabama Supreme Court then held that there is no post-minority support available to parents based on current Alabama statutory law.  The Christopher case applies to all cases now pending (and those in the future) which no final order has been entered already.
