Education Law Questions? Ask an Education Lawyer
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.The NC law states the following:§ 48A-2. Age of minors. A minor is any person who has not reached the age of 18 yearsAs such if he has reached the age of majority he is consider an adult.I suggest what you are referring to is in a divorce situation where there is child support the NC 50-13.4 states the following:(2) If the child is still in primary or secondary school when the child reaches age 18, support payments shall continue until the child graduates, otherwise ceases to attend school on a regular basis, fails to make satisfactory academic progress towards graduation, or reaches age 20, whichever comes first, unless the court in its discretion orders that payments cease at age 18 or prior to high school graduation.And so the answer to your question is No. Parents where the marriage is in tact have no financial or lawful obligation to their child once they reach the age of 18, the age of majority.Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification in this regard. Otherwise, thank you in advance for a positive rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you.
