Good morning. As long as Georgia retained jurisdiction over the support order and it was never modified by a court in Alabama, the Georgia child support order/obligation would automatically terminate at 18 years of age and once she finishes high school, unless otherwise specified in the court order. Support orders entered after 7/1/92 may provide for the extension of child support to age 20, if the child is still in high school, but that would have to be stated within the order, as mentioned above.
