    Question [=?] 18 yrs old and in 10th grade-

    My stepson turned 18 last year and is in the 10th grade.
    my question is how long do we have to pay child support?
    is it possible to lower? we pay the insurance (med) on the 21 yr old and the 18 yr old.

    Usually no child support for stepchild unless s/he is adopted by stepparent who divorces again.

    Agree [=|=] re: 18 yrs old and in 10th grade-

    There is a southern state, I think it is either Arkansas or Alabama, that establishes the age of majority at 19.

    In many states, if the kid is still in high school, you have to pay until graduation or age 19, whichever is later.

    I would second the suggestion that you read your spouse's child support order. If you are still not clear on this point and your spouse's child support is paid thru the Child Support Enforcement agency, you might try telephoning the case worker and asking this question.

    Arkansas when child turns 18 or graduates from high school.

    I suspect that if the child is 18 support has ended.

    Practically speaking however he might consider contining support until the child graduates otherwise he may end up dropping out.
