What State issued the child support order?

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
We are in Ohio
Family Lawyer: Maverick, Lawyer replied 7 years ago

Ohio law requires that support continues until the child is both 18 years of age and finishes high school. When your child turns 19 years of age, the child support will end. If she actually marries the boyfriend, then you may have grounds to ask that child support end.
