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.
He would no longer be obligated to pay support.
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.
Depends on the State. However if he is not a full-time high school student and is age 18 child support is no longer an obligation.
You will no longer have to pay child support once your child reaches 18 years old and they choose not to attend college. If they attend college full-time, you will be ordered to continue paying until they either graduate or drop out.
It's too late now. If you didn't want children you needed to plan ahead before your ex partner got pregnant. There are ways to avoid conception. As the child's father you will have to pay child support as long as the child's mother files a petition for child support.
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.
Yes, that doesn't relieve you of your duty to your child pregnant or not.
You're in arrears because you didn't pay the money when you should have. You owe them a debt, and you must pay it.
Of course not. He is still the father of his children and still responsible for supporting them.
Accept custody of your children. Someone has to support them, and I'd prefer that it be you instead of the taxpayer.
In general, the oldest child's right to support is not affected by the existence of younger children.
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.
No, that obligations is to the father of that unborn child. Also, once high school is completed your financial obligation for support ends.
When the child turns 18 and becomes an adult, the parent is no longer obligated to pay child support.
If you and your husband have been separated for over a year and he is not paying child support, you must consult a lawyer and have a custody agreement before taking the children out of state.
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
In general, child support is a percentage of net income. When calculating support for younger children, support actually ordered and paid for older children is subtracted from net income.
