Child-SupportWhen Does Child Support End?

Going through a divorce can be a difficult event for a family. Parents need to be particularly careful when there are children involved. Parents typically share parenting responsibilities, and the non-custodial parent usually pays child support. Child support is necessary to ensure the health and well-being of young children who are under the age of 18. Both parents have an obligation to provide for the welfare of their children. A child support order is a court document that requires a parent to provide money for a child, often as part of a divorce. A knowledgeable family law attorney will help guide the divorce process.

A lot of responsibility comes with being a parent. From infant to adult, parents have to provide their children with mental, emotional, and financial support. When a divorce occurs, these duties do not change, and chances are one parent will be required to pay child support. These payments will likely continue until the child is 18 years old, but the amount that is paid can easily be altered if a parent requests a modification to the child support order.
