Dear Customer,

Thank you for using Just Answer.

Whether you have to pay child support or not does not depend on whether either of the parents has remarried or not.

Wife support depends on whether the wife has remarried or not.
You are always liable for child support just because of the fact that you are related

I hope I was able to help

Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
So how long am I liable for child support?
Dear Customer,

You are liable for child support as long as your child is under 18 years of age

Above the age of 18 you are liable for as long as the child has not finished his education
