I have a son that is a manipulator that has been in and out of trouble. He has manipulated the system to move in with his aunt. Currently I am paying a very large sum of support for him, he will be 18 in August but has one more year of school left. Am I required to pay support for him until he is 18 or out of school?

The obligation to pay child support generally lasts until the child is 18 or graduates high school, whichever is later. Therefore, you would likely be obligated to continue paying until he graduates high school.
