It all depends. If a child reaches the age of 18 but enrolls in a higher education program or vocational school by Oct 1 after graduation of high school and attends at least 12 credit hours per semester then the answer is no. Child support continues until the age of 21.

If the child dies, marries, is self supporting and has been released from parental control by the parent who has custody, joins the military, fails to enroll in a higher education program and/or doesn't maintain passing grades in order to complete the caseload then child support should be terminated. One has to petition the courts in order for that to happen. Forms can be found at the site in the Related Links. It is always best to obtain an attorney to protect your rights and advise you on how to proceed.

Also be very leary of Missouri Child Support enforcement. Keep your own payment records and copies to prove how much you have paid and when because MCSE has a long and strong history of taking more money than they should, sloppy record keeping, and not terminating the child support order when it should have been terminated. They also have a habit of saying the absent parent owes more arrearages than they actually do and keep on taking it long after it has been paid. It is up to you to prove they are wrong so keep all records of payments, payment amounts, dates payments were made etc. and the totals and proof of how much they claimed you owed. It can take years to get it to stop even though it has all been paid. The person responsible for paying back the money that was over paid is the person receiving the child support money. In other words, you'll never get a penny of it back. We are out $9000. Please get an attorney because they will and do steal you blind.
