Child support ending at age 18

Does child support stop at 18 if the child is still in high school. Thanks

no, normally the condition is that the child has to have graduated from high school and be 18 yrs old. If they graduate high school late you would have to pay until that time. I suppose if they drop out then you only have to pay until they are 18.

The child support guidelines state that child support continues until the child is 18, or until the child is 20 if the child is still in high school and making satisfactory progress towards graduation.
