New Hampshire child support is typically paid until the child reaches the age of 18. However, in some cases, support may be ordered until the age of 21. If a child is still in high school at the age of 18, support may be ordered until graduation. Additionally, if a child has special needs, support may be ordered for an extended period of time.
