In California usually child supports ends at 18 or graduation from high schoo whichever comes later or 19 unless there is a stipulation to pay for more years or a certain event, consult your attorney
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and I have practiced over 38 years and can be reached at 213-819-1171. I practiced mainly in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. I am not seeking clients from existing relationships with other attorneys, and give only limited advise over the phone (the phone is primarily used to set appointments), these services do not create an attorney client relationship. I apologize for mispelling< as I am a lousy typist, My answers may offend as I do not believe in pulling punches or sugar coating the truth. Further regarding courts in other states my opinions are largely based on logic and what I think is the modern trend which is to consider the needs of the child.
In California, unless the parties agree in writing otherwise (and it becomes a court order), per statutory law child support ends when a child emancipates, marries, dies, reaches the age of 18 and is no longer a full-time high school student, or age 19, whichever occurs first. Unless your court orders says so, he is not required to keep paying after any of those terminating events. I suggest you speak with a family law attorney - there may be an issue with overpayment.
Short of special circumstances, the obligation to pay support in the State of Ca for a child ends upon the child turning 18 or graduated from high school, whichever is later, and by 19 it is done.
