Ask Your Own Family Law Question

In Arkansas, a person’s child support obligation will stop when one of the following things happens:

  1. The child turns 18 and is not enrolled in high school. (He or she has either graduated or dropped out when he or she turns 18.)
  2. The child is over 18 and graduates from high school.
  3. The end of the school year after the child turns 19.
  4. The child is emancipated.
  5. The child marries.
  6. The child dies.
  7. The child’s parents remarry.
  8. The child is adopted.

As such, this can be modified and terminated for the child who is 24 and once the 18-year-old graduates.
