Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you this afternoon.This is a very good question. Finishing high school does not grant the child adulthood or allows him to attain the 'age of majority'. As a consequence he is still a minor until he turns 18 and is therefore entitled to support. The high school graduation is there in case he goes beyond 18 and is still in school, but if he graduates at 17, he is still entitled to support until he turns 18. Hope that helps.
