For How Long Do I Have To Pay Child Support?

You’ll be paying child support until your children turn 21, with a few exceptions.

For instance, if your child marries and moves out of the home before turning 21, your support payments will usually be ended. If your child joins the military or Peace Corps before 21, your support payments will end.

One big question for many divorced parents is how they contribute to their child’s college education.

As you plan for the future, be sure to ask yourself (and possibly your child and ex-spouse) questions like, “Will my child be eligible for scholarships?” and, “Will my child want to attend a public college or a more expensive private university?”

Knowing that your mandated child support ends at 21, you’ll have options for how, and even whether, you contribute to your child’s education beyond that.
