Child Support for Children Beyond the Age of 18 in Illinois?

Question: Are there ever circumstances when the court extends child support payments past the age of 18? Answer: Child support may continue through the age of 19 if the child still attends high school.  Sometimes, court-ordered support will continue if the child is attending college or suffers educational and learning disabilities.     For more information about Illinois law, visit  If you have a legal question, send it to Illinois Law Now is a series of newspaper and internet posts prepared by the Illinois State Bar Association that address legal issues of interest to the public.
