When do you stop paying child in NYS?

Q: I have a child support order for 2 children, who are now age 22 and 20. The 22 yr old graduates college in December the 21 yr old is working. If the 21 yr old decides to go to college next yr a month b/f the 21st bday do I have to continue to pay and when do I stop paying?

A: David’s Answer: Child Support ends at age 21 in NY, unless you have a valid written agreement extending that deadline. If you do, or you owe arrears, then you may need to pay support until your obligation ends. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
