Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What does your child support order states?
Thank you for your follow up.
So the child support was never ordered by the court in your child's case ever?
So you simply had an informal agreement with the mother as to the child support payment?
When is the child expected to graduate from high school?
What do you mean a "new" claim?
Was there claim ever filed?
Is the mother asking for more than a monthly payment you were making?
Generally, the court under PA law would award child support until the child is either 18 or graduates / no longer in High School, whichever is later, regardless of whether the child was left behind or if the child is employed full time, so generally, if the custodial parent files for child support and the child is in high school, it is more than likely that the court would approve such petition and would order child support to be paid while child is in high school.

Generally, not, unless the child has been legally emancipated and resides on his/her own.
