In Florida, child support generally stops at the age of majority, which is 18 years old. However, if the child is still in high school, payments will continue until the child finishes high school or reaches the age of 19, if he or she has not graduated by that age. If special circumstances are present (i.e. disabled or mentally challenged children), child support payments could continue past the age of eighteen.
