The date that child support obligations are to terminate will be stipulated in the child support order. Generally it will read until the age of majority (18 except in Nebraska which is 19) or state a specified age and conditions. Child support is for the child/children and the parent who retains physical custody must use it for that purpose. An 18-year-old for all practical purposes is considered an adult and the child support payment legally belongs to him or her. The custodial parent can either return the money to the paying parent or give it to the named child. He or she cannot withhold the money from a child who has reached the age of majority, nor use it for their own purposes.
