Yes, a child dropping out of school has no bearing on child support. Depending on what your divorce decree says regarding child support, it normally terminates when the child turns 18.Ê

How do you prove the child is no longer enrolled in school


The child's school status would not, in itself, justify termination of support.


The child's school status would not, in itself, justify termination of support.



Yes, if the child is still an unemancipated minor.


Child support is paid until the child is at least 18 even if the child quit school or graduate early.


yes you do you need to pay child support till the child has turned 21 :D



Doesnt stop until the child is no longer a minor or the court says it stops.


Most child support documents require you to pay until 18, or finish school. Check with your child support office or your attorney.


This change would not, in itself, relieve the obligor of her/his support obligations.


As long as the child is a minor, yes. They still need a roof over their head and food etc.


Child support always continues until at least the age of majority. If the child is 18 and is not making satisfactory progress towards graduation, child support ends.



Check with a lawyer; if the child is over 18 and is no longer attending, then certainly you have a case.


Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age or the child graduates from high school, whichever occurs later. A child will also automatically be ineligible for child support if that child is removed from disability status by a court order. see link


It depends on the state. In most states, child support is required to continue until the child turns 18, regardless of whether or not they drop out of high school. However, some states allow child support to end early if the child drops out or is not making satisfactory progress towards graduation.


A parent quits paying child support when the child reaches the age of 18


Yes, until she reaches 18; she is still considered a minor even though she is pregnant and not attending school.


I'm not familiar with Missouri law, but I'm certain that the child support obligation would continue in such a case.


I believe it's law everywhere that you have to pay until they are 18 regardless if the child is in school or not. The court order for child support stipulates the manner and length of time in which support is mandated. Issues concerning the legitimacy of payment should always be discussed with legal counsel, preferably the attorney who handled the original case. The parent under the order should NEVER arbitrarily cease or change the payment arrangement. In the State of Michigan, if the child is no longer in school, i.e. quits before they turn 18, you are no longer obligated to pay child support.


No. The only time child support will change is if the one paying it has a change in their wages.



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.


If a 17 year old quits school, you as a parent or guardian will still have to pay for support because the 17 year old is still not of legal adult age which is 18.
