what about her, she's 15 years old
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are we still responsible to pay for her
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.

If he is young too most judges will still impose a child support obligation based on minimum wage or require that he work part time. You as parents would not owe child support but you would still have legal responsibility for her such as for her education or if she committed a crime.

I am based out of the USA but I presume your courts will approach it similarly.
