Child support terminates when a child turns 18 years old except when the 18-year-old child is still a full-time high school student and lives with a parent. In that situation, child support terminates when the child turns 19 or graduates from high school, whichever occurs first. California child support also terminates if a child marries, joins the military, is emancipated or dies.
Parents can also agree to support for an adult child beyond that although that is unique.
Always check your specific child support order! and remember, this is "general information" only and does not substitute for advice and counsel from a local attorney.
