The short answer is it depends. If your child support order doesn’t list a date of termination, you must keep paying child support until a judge issues a court order that ends your duty to pay. If you simply stop paying without a judge’s order, you risk being held in contempt of court for failing to pay child support. If the order doesn't state the date, then you will need to go to court to request a termination once the child is 18.
