My Uncle had to pay child support for his daughter until she graduated from college. She has a masters degree. Well, he had to keep paying, but the money did not go to her mom, it went to his daughter. She lived off and on with her mom. * It depends upon the terms of the child support order. The order itself will not stipulate that the parent has to continue to pay for higher education but it will designate the age at which child support ends. Other than there being a standing support order parents have no legal obligation to pay for their children's education after they have reached the state's age of majority.

Can child support continue if a child is 21 and in college?

Often a support order will address such issues as whether or not support should continue while the "child' continues his or her education even if said person has reached the age of majority. However, such support has to be reasonably based. This means that the obligated parent will not have to support an adult child if that person chooses to be a professional student. In most cases the court will allow child support to cease when the child reaches the legal age regardless of his or her educational status.
