Aug 8, 2012 by

Question: 

Under Arizona law will my ex have to continue to pay child support when my son turns 18 and is still in school? Even if my son moves out of my home and in with his dad upon turning 18 but there has been no modification to decree?

State: 
Arizona

Answer: 

Arizona sets the limit for child support payments at age 18 or when the child graduates from high school. The state statute says: The presumptive termination date shall be the last day of the month of the 18th birthday of the youngest child included in the order unless the court finds that it is projected that the youngest child will not complete high school by age 18. In that event, the presumptive termination date shall be the last day of the month of the anticipated graduation date or age 19, whichever occurs first. – The Divorce.com Team
