When can I stop paying child support in NJ?

  • Children are generally emancipated after the completion of a post-secondary educational course of training.
  • However, there are other situations where child support can be terminated, including if the child does not pursue any post-secondary educational endeavor after graduation from high school, joins the armed services, or is deemed emancipated because he or she has a stable income from other employment.
