Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'm a Family Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
Ohio Revised Code (section 3103.03) defines the age of emancipation as 18 years of age, or as long as the child attends high school on a full-time basis or a court order requires the duty of support to continue. Thus, child support would continue until the child reaches age 18......even if she's already graduated from high school.
