A: Child support terminates in Indiana at age 19 unless you have a disabled child. If your support is being paid by income withholding you may need an order from the court to terminate the withholding order when your child turns 19. I recommend consulting with a family law attorney in you area to review the facts of your particular case. If you owe back support, then you cannot merely stop paying support when your child turns 19. Also, payment of college expenses can extend past the age of 19.
