In Louisiana you pay child support until the child is 18 or 19 years of age. If the child is still in high school at the time when he or she turns 18, you would pay until …the child is 19 and out of school.
Child support ends when the child reaches the age of majority (18). See Louisiana Revised Statute 9:315.22 A. When there is a child support award in a specific amount per c…hild, the award for each child shall terminate automatically without any action by the obligor upon each child's attaining the age of majority, or upon emancipation relieving the child of the disabilities attached to minority. B. When there is a child support award in globo for two or more children, the award shall terminate automatically and without any action by the obligor when the youngest child for whose benefit the award was made attains the age of majority or is emancipated relieving the child of the disabilities attached to minority. C. An award of child support continues with respect to any unmarried child who attains the age of majority, or to a child who is emancipated relieving the child of the disabilities attached to minority, as long as the child is a full-time student in good standing in a secondary school or its equivalent, has not attained the age of nineteen, and is dependent upon either parent. Either the primary domiciliary parent or the major or emancipated child is the proper party to enforce an award of child support pursuant to this Subsection. D. An award of child support continues with respect to any child who has a developmental disability, as defined in R.S. 28:451.2, until he attains the age of twenty-two, as long as the child is a full-time student in a secondary school. The primary domiciliary parent or legal guardian is the proper party to enforce an award of child support pursuant to this Subsection.
No, currently in Louisiana it is not a felony to miss paying your child support. You can get jail time and be required to pay a fee though.
Yes if you get about the same amount of hours overtime every check, but they can't touch any expense check's such as milage or predem.
There is no statue of limitations for criminal offenses, only civil. This qualifies as a criminal case, therefore the statue of limitations does not apply.
In general, support is based on 20% of net income for one child, 25% for two, etc. If you're paying more than that, you should file a motion in the venue that issued the order… for support. SEE LINKS BELOW
Unless the judge ordered differently, child support in Louisiana is to be paid until the child reaches the age of 18, or sometimes older if still in school.
yes, until age 18.
It's not possible to answer such a question in this space. I suggest that you consult the LA child support agency or a private attorney specializing in LA family law.
Yes, as all states do.
$100 per child, except for extenuating circumstances.
In most States, there is no statute of limitations on child support arrears.
Until the age of 18, or if the child is still in high school it continues until the age of 19 or graduation, whichever comes first.
The answer to this question will depend on whether there is an existing case between the father and mother that has already set child support in the past. If there has been no… previous setting of child support, the parent requesting the support needs to file a petition and RULE NISI requesting an initial setting for child support. Attached to the petition should be an order requesting the defendant to show cause why child support should not be set. The court in which the petition is filed should have proper venue and jurisdiction. The court will set a hearing date based on this petition. When the hearing date arrives, the financial information from both parties will be used to determine child support. If a child support setting has already been made in a previous case, the court is going to require that there be a change in circumstances of one of the parents in order to be able to modify or reduce the amount of support. If there is an existing judgment of support, the party wanting to modify the support order is to file a motion for a modification of support. An order should be attached to the motion. Once the defendant is served and the court has set a date, the court will hear both sides arguments as to why support should or should not be modified. Warning Setting Child Support is much more complicated than it seems. A good family law attorney will be able to walk a client through the minefield of child support issues. If the child support amount is to high or too low, only a family law attorney will be able to recognize it. No one wants to over or underpay. Don't be that person who is paying or losing several thousand dollars a year because you decided to use a inexpensive attorney or attempted to practice the law yourself.

Depending on where you live (e.g. Australia) you can ring the Child Support Agency which is linked to the Australian Taxation Office and to Centrlink Parent's Pension. Provide…d you can establish your credentials (usually they will set up a password or similar for you). This allows both the paying parent or the receiving parent to access details. If you are not with the C.S.A. then you are stuck with your own accounting.
No. SS benefits and public assistance funds are still subject to child support enforcement.
Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age unless the child is still in high school - in which case the support ends upon the child's graduation fro…m high school, or the child's 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. Child support may continue past that time if the child is disabled and only by court order.
