If he violated the order by not paying, but then the tax intercept pays off all arrears, he could nevertheless be held in willful violation of the support order (for having violated it in the first place). That said, if there's no arrears by the time of court, then there's little the...Read more »
The short answer is yes - child support generally continues in NY until age 21 unless the child is emancipated.
