Child support for the one child is not necessarily exactly half of the amount it was for the two children. It sounds like the provision in the decree stating that child support stops when the oldest child graduated high school, since that was the later of the two events. So he is liable to pay for the few extra months. In addition, after that, if he keeps paying exactly half, that could be slightly insufficient, because, normally the amount would be about half, but from what I've seen it ends up being a bit more than half for the remaining child. Has that answered your question?
