I have filed a prose divorce with children but have realized that I could have filed a divorce without children sense there is already a final order for custody and support and at the time I filed my child was 17 and has since turned 18.

If the child is 18 then you will not need to file a divorce with children. You could amend the original petition to reflect this. Issues like this are easily avoided when you speak to an attorney first, so it may be a good idea to consult with one to make sure you are not missing anything else before the divorce is final. Good Luck.
