My husband's support order does not state anywhere on the document til what age, time, etc. he is ordered to pay child support.  They were never married so there is no divorce decree to check.  

Just wondering since we are contacting a lawyer this week to hear our case to have his support stopped on grounds that his son graduated from high school last week, is holding down a full time job, is living in his own apartment with his girlfriend, etc.

Any help would be great.

You people are wonderful on this board.

I would go to the state information on this webpage and see what the standard is. Sorry I don't know how to link you there, but it is easy to find.

Good Luck!

I found this on the internet


Q. How old does a child have to be before child support ends?

A. In most cases, 21. If a child is under 21 and is either married, self-supporting, or in the military, a parent doesn't have to pay child support.

Q. Is there any other reason why child support might end?

A. A child between 17 and 21 who has left home and refuses to obey parents' reasonable commands can be considered "emancipated" by a court. In that case, child support might not have to be paid.
