Child Support & Emancipation

Child support generally terminates when the child reaches the age of 19.  Contact a Denver Divorce Mediator to discuss the specifics of your case.  There are a number of exceptions to this rule including situations where the child has a mental or physical disability that renders the child incapable of supporting themself.  Furthermore, if the disability continues past the age of 21, child support may likewise be continued for the duration of the disability whereby support must be paid to the parent providing primary residence and custodial responsibilities.  This may occur even if the disabled adult is employed in a minimum wage capacity if they still require financial assistance from the parent for their living needs.  If you have any questions about your situation, please contact Mediation Partners at your convenience to discuss the specifics of your case.
