In Pennsylvania does a father have to continue paying child support for an 18-year-old who is pregnant?

The legal age of majority for the state is 18. However, the

terms stipulated in the child support order determines when the

obligated parent can cease payment. The pregnancy would not be a

factor in whether or not the noncustodial parent is still

financially obligated. If the terms of the order are unclear, it

would be advisable for the obligated parent to obtain legal advice

before taking any action.
