Thank you for your question and for using JA. Please click accept so I will receive credit from JA for my time.

In New York child support terminates when the child reaches the age of 21 unless there is a judicial decree of emancipation sooner. You could also be required in the court order to pay for expenses for higher education. Without knowing exactly what was in the order that is all the information that I can give you. You would need to file a petition in the same court to terminate the child support.
