When a child is away from home for 8 months of the year, does the court have to determine child support for the child over the age of 18?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Eagleton v. Lombardi, 2013 ONSC 1410 (CanLII):

After that time, although there is a presumption that the standard guideline approach to determining support for children over the age of majority should be used, it is probably not appropriate to do so where the child is away at university for eight months of the year. Lewi v. Lewi 2006 CANLII 15446; Coghill v. Coghill (2006)27 R.F.L 6434. 2009 and 2010 Monthly Child Support
