Many attorney's in Alabama websites agree with what you replied, but they go on to say that post minority support can, and commonly is, awarded for a child that has graduated high school and enrolled in college. Missouri, for example, clearly states that the obligation ends at age 21. What is Alabama's position on age limit for post minority child support? My child is not disabled.
"Alabama courts may require parents to provide post-minority support for child's college education. Ex Parte Bayliss, 550 So. 2d 1038 (1989); Ala. Code § 30-3-1." I found this by Googling Alabama post minority child support and one of the links was to just answer.com with the quote above. I believe that the post-minority support must be sought before the child turns 19, but my question about an age limit on post-minority support remains unanswered.
