How long do I have to pay child support/How long can I recieve child support?

The Arizona Revised Statutes state how long a child is eligible to receive child support payments. There is a presumptive end date for child support which is set as the last day of the month of the child’s 18th birthday. This means that if your child was born on January 10th, 1993, then child support for this child would cease on January 31st, 2011. However, there are criteria that may change this:

  • The child’s graduation date from high school.
  • Whether all payments have been made.
  • Whether the child is “severely mentally or physically disabled”
