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.

Does the noncustodial parent still have to pay child support if child becomes pregnant?

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 are receiving child support in the state of California and your child becomes pregnant at the age of 16 is the father of the child still obligated to still pay child support?

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.
