Frequently Asked Question: When Does Child Support End?

Back to News

When does the duty to pay child support end?

This depends on the circumstances surrounding the support order or agreement. The duty to pay child support generally lasts until the child reaches the age of majority, which is 19 years of age in New Brunswick.  The order may last longer if the child is in a full-time educational program or is disabled. The court may end an order before a child reaches the age of majority if the child gets married or withdraws from parental control.
