Not normally, no, unless the original support order includes a provision for extended support. Otherwise, his obligation of support ends when the child turns 18 or 19 years old, of agreement. Here is the statute: of 18 years except an unmarried child who has reached the age of 18 years, is a high school student, and that is not self-sufficient, it is considered a minor until the time the child completes the 12th grade or attains the age of 19 years, whichever occurs first. If you are paying a 21 years of age, you must back support or the custodial parent has asked for and received extended support.
