My Spouse Wants Child Support To End At 21, But My Child Is Mentally Disabled. Does Child Support Continue Indefinitely?

Your spouse will probably get their way when it comes to the child support obligation ending at the age of 21, despite your child’s disability.

Because New York offers various services to adults with disabilities, courts have typically sided with parents who argue that continuing child support payments for the rest of a child’s life represent an unfair burden on a the non-custodial parent.

It may not feel fair, because as the custodial parent, you’ll likely be caring for your adult child indefinitely. It may be possible to develop some accommodations that can outlast child support.
