Can I be sued for more child support after the child turns 18? 2 Answers as of June 14, 2016

I have joint custody of my 17 year old daughter. I still pay child support due to the income difference. I received a paper in the mail stating that child support will end in July when my daughter turns 18. Can her mother take me back for more child support because our child will still be in school and won't graduate until she is almost 19? On the court papers it says until the child turns 18 or finishes high school but can she get another order issued?

The law is very clear. Except in unusual circumstances, the obligation to support your child goes to age 18, or 19 if your child is still in high school.
