When does child support end in California?
In California the child support obligation continues past 18 years of age, as long as the child is unmarried, is a full-time high school student and is not self-supporting. In this case, the child support obligation will end when the child reaches 19 years of age or graduates high school, whichever of these occurs first.

You have to file to terminate it . No, it doesn't; you have to file to terminate it. In my case, my son turned 18 while he was still in high school. The court order stated …that support was to continue until he turned 18, or left high school, which ever was later. Even after graduation, child support payments continued until I filed proof with the court that he had graduated.

I wouldn't think so, if your child is under 18. No, the matter of a minor having a child of their own does not release the non custodial parent from his or her financial obli…gations.
The age of majority which for California is 18, unless the terms of the child support order states a specific age.

No. If a child is disabled prior to the age of majority, most states have different child support guidelines. Check your state laws. In many cases it can actually continue pas…t the age of majority.
In California if your child support ends when your child turned 18 and graduated from HS- can the custodial parent extend payment for college?
It would require a motion to the court at which you would be given a chance to respond. If approved, the money should go directly to the child, and if the child lives away fro…m the custodial parent's home, than that parent should also be required to pay their part. see links below
If the child is still in high school, child support continues until the child graduates or turns 19, whichever occurs first.
There are no published averages for child support in California, and it would be difficult to obtain such information. Child support in California can vary greatly and is en…tirely dependent on income levels of both parents. The minimum is $100 per month, but can reach very high numbers. For example, a parent earning $20,000 per month could end up paying $5000 or more per month in child support.
Not arbitrarily. Any such application would need to be approved by the courts. However, most states, including California, view over payments as gifts and not support. In rece…nt months, this issue has been raised due to a problem that has developed in the way that weekly payroll child support deductions are being processed. Eight percent of the payments are being classified as gifts, rather then support, leaving an unpaid amount of support by the end of the year.
