Child support should end when th child reaches the age of 18. From that age and until the child ceases in full time education or training, up to the maximum age of 25, a parent has an obligation to pay maintenance (known as ailment) directly to the child. There is no set amount. The amount depends on the child’s needs and the parent’s resources. Note that both parents have this obligation.
