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.

Yes, unless the order of support terms deem otherwise, the obligated parent must continue to support his or her minor child according to the child support order.

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 heard that once they turn 21 you no longer have to pay child support.unless they make you pay child support as long as they are in school.

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 marries, is removed from disability status by a court order, or the child dies.
