When does child support requirements end in Va?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Chesterfield, VA

I have two children (well one turns 20 soon). I have paid for two children and then some. Now that one is not a child, do i still have to pay the full amount or is half all that is required or do i need to go back to court to have the child support order amount cut in half?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Unless a child is disabled, child support ends at age 18 or age 19 if the child is still a full time high school student living at home. If you have an Order for more than one child you have to have the Order amended by the court as each child reaches the age of majority. You cannot just start paying less.
