    Answered . Child support terminates in CO at age 19 years. You have no obligation to pay any child support as soon as your daughter reaches age 19. You are also not obliged to pay the cost of beauty school. Your sole obligation is to pay child support which is calculated using the CO Child Support Guidelines though age 19.
