No, the legal age of majority in Kansas is 18, child support is for the child not for the custodial parent. Although the mother may be giving the funds to the young lady for her living expenses, if the minor has not been legally emancipated or deemed a ward of court order (in which case support money would be kept by the state), she should be residing with a custodial parent or legal guardian. The parent paying the support should contact the attorney who handled the original support issue or the clerk of the court where the order was issued to learn the options available. DO NOT arbitrarily cease suppport payments as it is always a possibility you could be found in violation of a court order, always wait until you have obtained qualified legal counsel.

How much child support do pay with two kids?

Child support is based off both parents income. So it will vary, if two or more kids are involved the child support is not as much if you had just one. If you pay child support for kids with different mothers the oldest child will always receive more support than the younger kids. Also if you have more kids with a different mother and she files for child support, the other kids who already receive support will decrease.
