Hello,

Unless your support order stipulates support ends at 18 you must continue until the child reaches age 21, unless child has been determined to be legally incapacitated or an order for educational support was established before age 21.

Changing his last name holds no bearing on child support issues. For additional information on ending support please Click Here
