Reply: California child support

In a general sense, child support ends in California at age 18, except that if a child turns age 18, is still in high school full time and resides with a parent, child support extends to age 19 or graduation from high school, whichever first occurs.

For a specific opinion regarding your individual circumstances, I suggest that you consult with an experienced family law lawyer and have him or her review your particular Judgment. Experience is not expensive, it's priceless!
