When someone asks me as a Buffalo Child Support Attorney, how long they will be obligated to pay child support, the answer is clear.
- In New York, support is paid until the child reaches age 21.
- In certain circumstances – if your child gets married, joins the military, or has a full-time job – the support obligation may end before the child reaches 21.
- Absent such emancipation events, the obligation to pay child support for each child will continue until that child reaches the age of 21.
