Boulder Emancipation Attorney
In Colorado, the right to receive child support, and the obligation to pay child support, continues until your children are emancipated. For child support purposes, emancipation occurs, and child support terminates, when the last or only child attains nineteen years of age, unless one of the following conditions exists:
• The parties agree otherwise in a written stipulation;
• If the child is mentally or physically disabled;
• If the child is still in high school or an equivalent program, support continues until to end of the month following graduation;
• If the child marries; or
• If the child enters into active military duty.
A child may also be deemed to be emancipated if they are living independently of the parents and capable of supporting themselves. Determining if a child is emancipated can have a significant impact on your obligation to pay and the right to receive child support.
