It depends on your state. In most places it ends when the child

reaches and 18 and also graduates from high school but not after

their 19th birthday. In some states it is 21.

A Separation Agreement signed by the parties at the time of the

divorce can provide for child support until the child has completed

an undergraduate degree in a timely manner. Also, some states are

extending the period for child support to cover higher
