In most cases child support orders are enforced until the child reaches the age of majority, which in most states is 18. There are however, contributing factors in individual cases. The age may be specified in the original order, or it can be modified if the child is a student, or disabled, among other things. Consult the state of residency's emancipation laws. If that child dropped out of school that also matters check your state laws

If you live in the US... Being pregnant/giving birth does not emancipate a minor.

The father will be paying (or SHOULD be paying) child support at LEAST until the child turns 18, and could possibly have to pay longer depending on what a judge says. For instance, in some cases if the father is a college graduate, then some courts require them to pay some kind of support if the child continues through college.

No, your child will not be emancipated because she is pregnant and her parents still have to support her until she is.

That is dependent on state laws and whether he stopped paying due to be denied access to the children, which happens in 60% of the cases.

No. Fathering more children will normally mean paying more support, not less.

Children whose parents do not support them end up receiving public assistance.

You should contact your attorney. It is likely that you should be paying the support to DSS.

He can't. The only way to not be responsible for your own children is to not have any.

Don't have children. If you do, expect to pay for them. If you don't support the kids you bring in to the world, then the rest of us have to.

Normally, after children are adopted out, a person no longer pays child support. Still, the court or law decides. This is read by 50 states and nearly 200 countries. In your situation, who knows? Why isn't he challenging for custody? see links below
