Length of child support

Dear nwkltl:

In North Carolina, you are correct, unless he has agreed to something else in a separation agreement. You can find the termination of child support information at NCGS 50-13.4(c)(2).

my brothers girlfriend is trying to get child support where she does not have custody. can she legally get it

My husband’s attorney has told him that he may have to pay child support until his daughter is 21, if she goes on to college! Is this true??? I was certain that child support ended at age 18 or at age 20 if the child was still in high school. I can’t believe that a father would have to continue to pay child support through college! What is you opinion on this?
