In most states the legal age of majority is 18. What determines the length of time that child support is to be paid are the terms of the child support order. The best choice is for the obligated parent to have the support order assessed by a qualified family law attorney

Does the non custodial parent still pay child support if the custodial parent moves out of state with the child?

Yes of course.

If an adult child moves into her boyfriends' house does the custodial parent still get child support?

Unless there are unusually circumstances, once a minor becomes an adult under the laws of the state in which he or she lives (or as stated in the support order) child support ends. If he or she has established residence outside the custodial parent's home with the approval of the custodial parent, the obligated parent should petition the court to have the support order amended or rescinded. Child support money is for the support of minor children and not "owed" to the custodial parent. The custodial parent does have the legal right to sue the obligated parent for any arrearages or "extra" expenses incurred while the minor child was in his or her care.

Does a non-custodial parent have to pay child support if all children live with them and not the custodial parent?

In Massachusetts: If there is a child support order (issued by the court) then the 'non-custodial' parent will have to pay child support to the 'custodial' parent until the child support order is modified by the court. Even if the kids actually live with the 'non-custodial' parent, that parent still has to follow the current court orders, no matter how unfair. If the kids are living with the non-custodial parent, though, it shouldn't be too difficult to go into court and get the child support order changed.


If a 21 year old full time student lives on their own is the custodial parent entitled to child support?

If the support order included a provision continuing support while the child was enrolled in college it does not matter where the child is living, as the support is to reimburse the custodial parent for the non custodial parents share of the child's expenses. If the child is attending school the custodial parent is likely still paying expenses for that child regardless of where they are living


Do you have to pay child support for a person who is 21?

Not usually, but there are some cases in which you might. 1. Some states require the non-custodial parent to continue to pay child support if the child hasn't graduated high school and is still living with the custodial parent. 2. If the child is disabled, there is no cut off age for ending child support. The non-custodial parent will continue to owe child support for as long as the disabled child lives with the custodial parent.

Check the link below for specifics, but yes, except a request can be made to transfer the payment to the adult caring for the child, or the child in states like Texas, where a 16 year old cant rent an apartment.
