Legal Question in Family Law in Maryland

My daughter turned 18 in March, yet she will not graduate until June. She lives with me and attend high school in the state of Maryland . He father paid support in march and now refuses to pay any more for April and may. I believe the law says he must continue until she graduates from school. Am I correct?

The law doesn't say anything about how long a parent must pay child support -- the child custody order from the court is what will dictate how long Dad must pay child support. I cannot tell you whether you are right or wrong without seeing that court order.

Best of luck.
