I didn't realize CS ending dates varied so much. My state is 18 if they do not go to college, 22 if they attend college. Fortunately for me I have a very reasonable Ex. We just split the college bill and ended the child support at 18 and I let her keep the tax deduction.
I always thought it odd, a married couple could kick a kid out at age 18 and not pay a nickel of college, but get divorced and now you are on the hook for the bill. It did not affect me because I was going to pay anyways, but still seems like a very odd law.
