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.
Nope once they are 18 and outta HS.. kid is on their own. Trust me I asked the state support attorney
There is no child support after a child turns 18 in Texas, unless the child has not graduated high school.
The child's school status would not, in itself, justify termination of support.
Typically, yes. Most states order child support to continue through high school. Check your order to see what it says.
I do believe that in most states the support payments continue as long as the child is in school including college.
Child support is paid until the child is at least 18 even if the child quit school or graduate early.
In the US, yes, you have to continue paying child support.
At 18, you are no longer considered a child for child support purposes unless you have not graduated high school or are disabled. If the child is 18 and out of high school, you must contact the Texas AG to stop child support.
In Texas, when the child graduates from High School. So if you have more then one child, when the last child that you have graduates from High School is when the child support payments will end for you. If the child is not in school for whatever reason it is the age of 18 years old.
At what age does child support payments end? Generally, the obligation ends when the child reaches 18 years of age or the child graduates from high school, whichever occurs later. However, a court can order the obligation to continue for an indefinite period if the child is disabled. A child will automatically be ineligible for child support if that child marries, is removed from disability status by a court order, or the child dies. Texas
Only with a modified order. Texas law does not provide for it. See link.
Most times the agreement is that the child will be supported through college. If they turn 18 and do not continue with school, then child support ends.
Child support is paid as long as the child is a minor, get emancipated or when the child support agreement says so.
Yes, provided child is not in high school.
Yes you do, and you will have to continue child support if the child goes to college as a full-time student.
It depends. Texas statue states 18 or graduation from high school whichever is later. However, if the child has purposely not attended school, etc...you can request a review and stop child support.
Contact Texas Fathers For Equal Rights for the answer, see link below.
The court would likely first consider whether the child is emancipated. If so, it seems likely that support would be terminated.
Yes, it does.
Child support in Texas ends when the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from high school whichever comes LAST. Additionally, if the child marries or becomes emancipated you can request that your support payments stop.
You should review the child support order and if it doesn't state the child support should continue then notify the court.

Yes, until the child reaches the age of 18. However if your child continues school, you get child support until the age of 21 or until he/she is no longer enrolled and attending school.
While elementary school is mandatory, high school is not. Unless the support order specifically states that the child needs to be attending high school in order for support to be paid, the answer is "NO".
If there is no child support owed that is in arrears, for Kentucky child support orders, the child support order ends when the child turns 18, unless he or she is still enrolled in high school, in which case child support would continue through the school year in which the child turns 19. Under certain circumstances, child support may continue past the child turning 18 (or 19 if still in high school) if ordered by the court. If the support order is for more than one child, the support obligation will not automatically end when one of the children reaches 18 (or 19 if still in high school) unless that child is the youngest child or the child support order listed a separate amount of child support for each child. If neither of these conditions exists, a request for a review of the child support obligation must be submitted before any change in the obligation amount can be made. If child support is in arrears, it will continue until the past due amount is completely satisfied.
18 unless the child support order provides for payments to continue as long as the child is in school full time working on a degree.
