Check with a lawyer; if the child is over 18 and is no longer attending, then certainly you have a case.

Yes, unless the child is still in school or attending college

Child support is not based on whether the child is attending school but is based on the living needs of the child and visitation, unless there is a specific court stipulation to that fact.

User Avatar

Yes, until the child reaches the age of 18. However if your child continues school, you get child support until the age of 21 or until he/she is no longer enrolled and attending school.

While elementary school is mandatory, high school is not. Unless the support order specifically states that the child needs to be attending high school in order for support to be paid, the answer is "NO".

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

If you are a father, you have to pay child support if the court says so. The age of the father does not matter.

User Avatar

You would have to go back to court...if you are unwilling to do so. Given that the child is still attending school, you are probably not "home free."

You will need to contact the agency to stop child support. However, if the child is still attending high school, 18 is not the "magic" age in many places.

child support, is for the support of children (most states agree this is under age 18) and support usually continues thru the school year of that birthday. most states agree support for adults attending higher education is encouraged, but it is voluntary and child support obligations are ended when the minor reaches majority.

Can you get child support inArkansasif their father is incarcerated

User Avatar

Yes, custodial payments are for the support and care of a child until they are 18.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

Generally if the child is still attending high school, child support is in effect. Some agreements include college up to 22. It just depends on your state and your agreement.

Any father can be sued for child support, and even those who are not the father of the child.

you have to pay child support as long as your child is under 18 years of age

User Avatar

Do not look for reimbursement; but do check in with your legal help if the child has not attended school for six months or longer to end child support--this will prevent your being out of compliance.AnswerYou need to notify the court that the child is no longer attending school. The court will advise you as to what proof you will need. Generally, if the child has left school permanently you can file for a termination of the child support order. You will not be reimbursed for prior child support payments but you need to stay on top of the situation.

At 18, you are no longer considered a child for child support purposes unless you have not graduated high school or are disabled. If the child is 18 and out of high school, you must contact the Texas AG to stop child support.

User Avatar

No, but you'll have to take the matter to family court so that it can be legal. If a child is 19 and handicapped, that's a different story. Probably not, the kid should get a job.

If you are the child's father then you really have little legal support to not support your child. Your child is legally entitled to your financial support.
