2) The adoptive parent is no longer legally responsible to financially support the child. An adoptive parent(s) is financially supporting the child if the adoptive parent(s) provides the child with shelter, food and clothing or child support. A parent is generally responsible for the support of a child who is under the age of eighteen or a child with a physical and/or mental disability who is under twenty-one years of age.

Do we want to look at the term "legally responsible". When are kids turn 18 and the parents ask for an extension, technically at 18 would the family really be "legally responsible"?? This may be a legal question. I would purpose to change it to say, "the family is no longer financially supporting the child".
