The non custodial parent who is paying child support is legally bound to the terms of the support order until the terms are changed or the support is ended by the court. You could consult an attorney about getting the amount reduced making a request can be made to be relieved of the financial responsibility.

The terms of the current support agreement dictate when financial support of a biological or legally adopted child should terminate. The legal age of majority for the state is 18.

Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age unless the child is still in high school - in which case the support ends upon the child's graduation from high school, or the child's 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. Child support may continue past that time if the child is disabled and only by court order.

The duty to provide support for a minor child shall continue until the child reaches the age of majority, dies, marries, or becomes emancipated, whichever first occurs. However, the court has discretion to direct either or both parents to provide financial assistance to a child who has not previously married or become emancipated, who is enrolled in and attending a secondary school, and who has attained the age of majority before completing his or her secondary school education, provided that such financial assistance shall not be required after a child attains 20 years of age. Section §19-6-15 of the Georgia Codesee links



Often a support order will address such issues as whether or not support should continue while the "child' continues his or her education even if said person has reached the age of majority. However, such support has to be reasonably based. This means that the obligated parent will not have to support an adult child if that person chooses to be a professional student. In most cases the court will allow child support to cease when the child reaches the legal age regardless of his or her educational status.

There are a couple of reasons why someone might still be paying child support in Pennsylvania after the child reaches his/her majority. The judge could have ordered the noncustodial parent to continue child support until the child reaches the age of 22 or is no longer enrolled in and attending higher educational classes. The noncustodial parent may not have paid the full amount of child support each month or may not have paid child support at all for some time before the child reached his/her majority. In that case, the noncustodial parent must continue paying child support until the arrears plus interest have been fully paid.
