until the child reaches 18 years of age. yes, she does have to pay it. Every parent is responsible for the financial support of their minor child/children until they reach the legal age of majority or the age stipulated in the child support agreement. A parent can only be "forced" to pay child support by a court order, a minor cannot petition for child support themselves, but will need to be represented by an adult family member or a guardian ad litem appointed by the court.
