Topic: Child Support Law.
Join attorney Robert Bellinger as he discusses the Child Support Law that took effect on July 1st.
In light of the July 1, 2012 change to the Indiana Child Support law the duty of a parent to pay child support ceases when the child becomes 19 years of age. The previous law mandated child support payment until the child reached the age of 21 (unless the child was legally emancipated before coming of age). However, a parent may still procure an order for a child's educational needs. Further, child support obligations under the new law shall continue unless any of the these conditions occur: (1) the child is incapacitated; (2) the child is at least 18 and has not attended a secondary (college/trade school) or post-secondary school for the prior 4 months and is not currently enrolled in said school; and (3) the child is capable of supporting himself/herself through employment.
