Not necessarily. If your child is enrolled in a college or vocational school by October 1st of the year he or she graduates from high school then your child support obligation continues so long as that child is attending school on a full time basis and receiving passing grades. Your child is required to notify you of his or her enrollment and of their grades. If you do not receive notification you can ask the court to have your child declared emancipated and that is when your child support obligation would stop. There are many many “what if’s” in this area such as what if my child is employed, what if my child doesn’t pass all of his or her classes. Each circumstance is unique.
