How does your child continue getting the arrears from the owed child support after he turns eighteen?

It all depends on WHO the arrears are being paid to. If the father was paying support directly to the mother, the back support/arrears would go to the mother. The support was never owed to the child, who has no standing in it. The payments are supposed to assist the mother by helping her to raise the child until the legal age of adulthood or whatever age was specified in the support decree. The support money belongs to her and if she chooses to turn it over to the child that his her business. Legally, the child has no claim on it. ON THE OTHER HAND: If the arrears are being paid to the state - the father is simply reimbursing the state for spending taxpayers money to support her for all the time he did not pay, and neither the mother nor the child has any claim on it.

The biological father may only stop paying child support under one of the following four circumstances: Death of the child; the child turns 18 and decides not to pursue higher education; the child quits or graduates higher education; or the biological father is found not to be the "true" father. So, if a stepfather adopts them, more than likely, the biological will still be responsible for child support.

In state of kentucky do you have to pay child support after child is 18?

If there is no child support owed that is in arrears, for Kentucky child support orders, the child support order ends when the child turns 18, unless he or she is still enrolled in high school, in which case child support would continue through the school year in which the child turns 19. Under certain circumstances, child support may continue past the child turning 18 (or 19 if still in high school) if ordered by the court. If the support order is for more than one child, the support obligation will not automatically end when one of the children reaches 18 (or 19 if still in high school) unless that child is the youngest child or the child support order listed a separate amount of child support for each child. If neither of these conditions exists, a request for a review of the child support obligation must be submitted before any change in the obligation amount can be made. If child support is in arrears, it will continue until the past due amount is completely satisfied.
