How Long Does Child Support Last?

Another common question is how long does child support last. The age of emancipation in New York State is 21. However, there are other reasons why that would end sooner, and we can discuss that in further detail during a free phone consultation. Call today to learn more.

In most cases, child support orders last until the child is 21 years of age. However, if the child is emancipated before reaching 21, the order will be terminated. This occurs if the child joins the military, is married, or self-supporting. Also, if the child is between the ages of 17 and 21 and chooses to leave home and fails to obey the parents, the order is discontinued.
