Confusion can occur regarding when and under what conditions child supports ends. In many states, 18 years old is the age that child support is terminated. However, there are conditions that modify this part of the law. Certain states allow the continuation of support beyond the age of 18 if the child continues to live at home and attends high school. Children with disabilities or special needs often continue to receive child support.

Can a child ask the judge to live with one parent over the other?

During a Connecticut divorce or some time after a family court judge has issued a child custody order, a child might talk about preferring to live with one parent instead of another.

Along with the child's preference, judges must consider each parent's ability to meet their child's developmental needs and the child's relationship with each of his or her parents.
