Hello again, Heather, and thank you for clarifying that for me.
Child support may not continue after the child graduates from high school pursuant to the CA code unless the parents agree to continue such support.
The code sets out in relevant part:
3901. (a) The duty of support imposed by Section 3900 continues as to an unmarried child who has attained the age of 18 years, is a full-time high school student, and who is not self-supporting, until the time the child completes the 12th grade or attains the age of 19 years, whichever occurs first.
Unlike the law in some states, CA does not provide for support to continue after graduation from high school if the child goes to college.
Here is a link to the code:
