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.

depending on the student's decition, she has the right to stay in school or drop out. It also depends if the school is public or private. You would have to look into the guidlines on pregnant students in the handbook that the school offers.

No, that obligations is to the father of that unborn child. Also, once high school is completed your financial obligation for support ends.

sure u can..if u can support urself and are over 18 or emancipated.

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

I Think The Right Age To Get Pregnant Is When You Finish School Because You Have To Finish School In Order For You To Support The Baby Cause Your Momma Cant Support You And The Baby And You Are Still A Child.Soo You Should Have A Baby At About The Age 21 Or 22. When You Are Out Of College And Married!

The child's pregnancy would not, in itself, be cause for terminating support.

At what age does child support payments end? Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age or the child graduates from high school, whichever occurs later. Tennesseesee related link

Depends on the age of the child. If they become pregnant and eligible for their own government financial assistance then possibly NO. But if they are pregnant with no government assistance then YES. I believe that child support must continue until the child is old enough to have graduated from high school. Age 17 approx, regardless of circumstances... Besides, if your daughter is having your grandchild she will need financial help regardless.

If you're in the US, once she turns 18, she can move out, and no, you do not have to support her.

She didn't. By her own account, she dropped out of high school at age 15, became pregnant and had to struggle to support herself after she moved away from home at age 16.

Yes, you have to pay until she is emancipated. Dropping out of school and being pregnant makes no difference as long as she is a minor.

I don't live in Cali but in most states the only time a child support case ends is when a child turns 18 or graduates from high school whichever comes last and not to exceed 19. Her having a baby should not have anything to do with your support.
