How long will child support payments have to be made?

In most cases, child support payments will continue until your child reaches the age of 18. If your child becomes emancipated, payments may be terminated at that time. Sometimes a child may still be in high school when he or she turns 18, in which case, the court may order payments to continue until the child’s graduation.
