Under Wisconsin law, a parent’s duty to support his or her child continues until age 18, or age 19 if the child is still enrolled in high school or working on a high school equivalency course (GED). "Emancipation Notices" will be sent to both parents 90 days before the verified date of graduation of the 18th birthday of their youngest child. The order for current support will end when the youngest child turns 18 unless a parent shows documentation to the child support agency that the child is still attending high school or is enrolled in a program to obtain his or her GED. So if the child is in college, the obligation will be ended. Check your child support order to see if the end date for graduation has been provided. If not and you know your child’s graduation date, contact your child support agency. Your duty for current child support ends during the month that your 18-year-old daughter graduates.
