What Age Do You Stop Paying Child Support in Colorado?

In Colorado, parents are responsible for financially supporting their children until they reach the age of 19. However, child support may end earlier or later depending on certain exceptions, such as:

  • if the child is still in high school, child support payments continue until a month after graduation;
  • if the child drops out of high school and later re-enrolls, child support is required until a month after graduation, but not beyond age 21;
  • if the child is physically or mentally disabled, child support may continue longer;
  • if the child gets married before the age of 19, he or she will be considered emancipated, meaning child support will no longer be mandatory (however, if the marriage ends, child support may be reinstated);
  • if the child joins the military before the age of 19, he or she will also be considered emancipated and therefore child support will end early.
