As long as the child is a minor, yes. They still need a roof over their head and food etc.

How do you prove the child is no longer enrolled in school

The child's school status would not, in itself, justify termination of support.

yes you do you need to pay child support till the child has turned 21 :D

Most child support documents require you to pay until 18, or finish school. Check with your child support office or your attorney.

Yes, a child dropping out of school has no bearing on child support. Depending on what your divorce decree says regarding child support, it normally terminates when the child turns 18.Ê

This change would not, in itself, relieve the obligor of her/his support obligations.

Child support always continues until at least the age of majority. If the child is 18 and is not making satisfactory progress towards graduation, child support ends.

Check with a lawyer; if the child is over 18 and is no longer attending, then certainly you have a case.

A parent quits paying child support when the child reaches the age of 18

Yes, until she reaches 18; she is still considered a minor even though she is pregnant and not attending school.

If a 17 year old quits school, you as a parent or guardian will still have to pay for support because the 17 year old is still not of legal adult age which is 18.

Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age or the child graduates from high school, whichever occurs later. A child will also automatically be ineligible for child support if that child is removed from disability status by a court order. see link

It depends on the state. In most states, child support is required to continue until the child turns 18, regardless of whether or not they drop out of high school. However, some states allow child support to end early if the child drops out or is not making satisfactory progress towards graduation.

I believe it's law everywhere that you have to pay until they are 18 regardless if the child is in school or not. The court order for child support stipulates the manner and length of time in which support is mandated. Issues concerning the legitimacy of payment should always be discussed with legal counsel, preferably the attorney who handled the original case. The parent under the order should NEVER arbitrarily cease or change the payment arrangement. In the State of Michigan, if the child is no longer in school, i.e. quits before they turn 18, you are no longer obligated to pay child support.

What, boarding school is free? Yes, you have to pay your child support payments regardless of where the child is living. They are used to support the child regardless of where they are living.

Yes. Child support in most states makes you obligated to pay until your child is 18, or graduates from high school. If your child is under 18 and in trade school, you still have to pay.

do u have to pay child support when the child is still in school at the age of 18

Yes. Child support is not something you pay so the child will stay in school, it's for their living expenses until they are emancipated and can support themselves.

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.

You have to pay until they are 18 years old or whatever your child support papers say. Dropping out of school or them becoming pregnant has nothing to do with it. Child support is to help support the child not keep them from dropping out of school or becoming pregnant.

Yes ... the court papers usually only specify the age, not whether they are in school or not. If one is behind in their support payments, they will continue to pay until completely caught up, even if the child has attained age 18 or beyond.

No, I do not have to pay child support.
