What will happen is Child Benefit will write to you, and invite you to apply for an Education Run On.  See https://www.gov.uk/child-benefit-16-19

If Child Benefit continuies, then the young person is still considered as a Dependent, so
a, You will still get Child Tax Credit and depending on income, Working Tax Credit
b, If you claim Council Tax Reduction the Childs Occupancy affects the disregard amount they use.
c, Your ex in a CMS case, has to carry on paying Child Support
d, The Court would not force the sale of the house in most situations.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.
