Q: If my daughter had a baby with a 19 year old and is 1 year behind in high school, do I still have to pay child support

I pay each month and provide extra for her and her baby and her mother does the want to drop my support bc she's afraid she will not get as much from the grand child's father

Ellen Cronin Badeaux answered on Aug 6, 2019

Your child support is dur to the mother of your daughter until your daughter is 18 or has graduated from high school, whichever comes last, but no later than her 19th birthday. This will NOT effect the child support your daughter re receives from the 19 year old.
