If your son turned 18 in January and graduated from high scholl in May of the same year and has been accepted into the Marine Corps and will go to boot camp in August of the same year, does his father pay child support for June, July, and August?

Depends on what your divorce decree says. If you have a wage assignment, you will have to file a Petition to stop the wage assignment. Generally child support stops when they graduate or turn 18
Under the circumstances you described (and without seeing the divorce decree), the child support should end in May (after your son was 18 AND graduated from high school). Once your son is emancipated, his father has no obligation to continue to provide child support.
No. Child support ended in May.
If you overpaid, we can certainly help you consider and then pursue your options for collecting that overpayment.
