You have to look at the child support order. If the order requires you to pay child support until the child is 21 and college expenses, you have to continue to pay both. If the order is ambiguous, you may want to schedule a consultation with an attorney for guidance. It is difficult to provide an answer without first reviewing the order.

This depends upon the terms of your divorce agreement. However, you may be entitled to a dollar for dollar credit on room and board paid by you. You should consult with an attorney and have your divorce agreement reviewed.
