Hello! I would be glad to assist you with this question. First, in the state of Nevada the age of majority is defined as is 18; or up to a maximum age of 19, if a student is enrolled in, but has not yet completed high school for the purposes of child support. This is found in the Nevada Statutes NRS 129.010, 125.510, 125B.110 and 425.300. You generally cannot just stop paying support unless the order for child support states so. For instance, generally it says something along the lines of .... Payor is obligated to pay child support for X child in the amount of X until that dies reaches the age of majority, or is 19 and in high school, married or dies....etc. If this language is in your child support order you can cease payments. However, I would still advise getting a court order.
As for your alimony payments, again, it should be set out in the Court order as to the termination date. If there is a termination date then effective that date you can stop payments otherwise you should ask for a court order
The only way the child support would continue for your daughter was if she was still in high school which she is not, therefore there are no grounds for it to continue as to that child.
