When do child support payments stop?


It is required to make payments for child support until the child reaches the age of majority, i.e. 18 years of age.

Depending on the Act under which the claim pertains, bringing the matter to court may extend the payments because the child (who is now over the age of majority) is either enrolled in an education program full-time, has an illness or disability or due to some “other cause” requires continuous support.
