The legal age of majority in Nebraska is 19. In all other states the age when a minor becomes an adult is 18. This does not apply to court orders of support where a different age is stipulated and it may not apply to a person who is physically or mentally disabled.

If they are emancipated, they are no longer considered 'under age.' In order to be emancipated, they have to show that they can take care of themselves and have financial stability.

This child would probably be considered emancipated and therefore no child support would be awarded.
