Legal Ease, Expert

Hi, my name is***** am an attorney and I will try to help you.

If you get a phone call request during our conversation, you can ignore it; it is generated automatically by the site, not by me.

Generally, depending on which state you are in, child support ends when the child becomes a certain age (usually 18 or 19), or graduates from high school. There are some states that have child support last longer if the child does not graduate from high school.

So the first thing would be to tell me which state the daughter is living in and whether she has graduated from high school so I can provide a more detailed answer.

I am a lawyer in Canada and happy to step in.

Does the child still attend school full-time?

Without the information I requested, I can only give a general answer, but I hope this is helpful.

Child support is legally the right of the child so even if there is this agreement in most cases the court would say child support continues until the child completes their first degree.

Does that help?
