Summer Lovin' Series #6: How long can DOR collect child support for?
M.G.L. ch. 208 s. 28.
In basic terms child support in Massachusetts stops when the child turns age:
- 18, unless the child is still principally dependent on the custodial parent (i.e. the child is no longer principally dependent if they've moved out of the home, except for college, is employed full time, is married, of has joined the military);
- 21, unless the child is enrolled in a full-time undergraduate college program;
- 23, no matter what.
