Do you have a child that is getting ready to turn 19? Does child support end?

As a general rule, child support in Indiana ends at age 19. However, there is a new law in Indiana, beginning July 1, 2019, which could extend the child support until the child graduates from high school. 

The child must be a full time student in high school. The child's parent or guardian has to file a request with the court before the child turns 19 to ask the court to extend child support until the child graduates from high school. The parent has to show proof that the child is enrolled in high school and include the date the child will graduate.

If you have a child that will still be in high school when they turn 19, please contact Allen Wellman McNew Harvey, LLP, and schedule an appointment with one of our attorneys to discuss your child's circumstances. (2019 - HEA 1520 modification of I.C. 31-16-6-6.)
