The answer depends on the language in the final judgment. Generally, child support will continue to the child's 18th birthday OR graduation from high school if the child will graduate before the age of 19 and is participating in good faith. In order to modify, there needs to be a substantial change in circumstances that was no anticipated at the time of final judgment. Consult with a family attorney in order to discuss the specific facts of this modification.
