Yes ... the court papers usually only specify the age, not whether they are in school or not. If one is behind in their support payments, they will continue to pay until completely caught up, even if the child has attained age 18 or beyond.

do u have to pay child support when the child is still in school at the age of 18

I think u still have to pay since it is still your child

You have to pay until they are 18 years old or whatever your child support papers say. Dropping out of school or them becoming pregnant has nothing to do with it. Child support is to help support the child not keep them from dropping out of school or becoming pregnant.
