When Do I Stop Paying Child Support?
The court may order one or both parents to support a child. Obligor is the parent that the court orders to make payment towards the support of the child.
On the other hand, the obligee is the parent that has exclusive right to receive payment of support.
- the marriage of the child;
- removal of the child’s disabilities for general purposes also known as emancipation.
- the child dies;
- child is 18 years old or older or until graduation from high school, whichever occurs later;
- A court order terminating parent-child relationship as a result of genetic testing which proved that Obligor is not the child’s father;
- the remarriage of the child’s parents.
If the child has failed to comply with the enrollment or attendance requirements and he/she is 18 years old, then child support may terminate too.
