Child support after 18


#1

The law varies from state to state. Maybe he is complying with the order of another state. Or maybe, he signed a contract obligating himself to pay until age 21. Otherwise, I have no idea.

My ex. has a daughter 18 who graduated last June. She is not in college and is not disabled or handicapped in any way. Why does he say he has to pay support until she is 21. He said the court ordered it. How can that be. I think he is lying. janice
