I could be mistaken, but I believe that child support only applies for the biological mother/father of the actual baby. As you are the father/mother of the mother, I don't think you have to pay anything, even if you're daughter is only 16. The 18 year old is the one that has to worry . . . but this could also change depending on what country/state you're from. Im from NSW Australia, and that's what would apply here, but things could be different for you. Wishing you the best of luck in the future . . . Having a child does not emancipate a person. Your 16-year-old daughter is still a minor, and therefore you'd still have to pay child support for her (notice I said *her* not her child). I'm assuming she's not married and is still in school and lives at home?
