  • I thought that you had to be under 18 to be emancipated because you are an adult at age 18, he should still have to pay the back child support.

  • I'm not sure how it would work there but in the state of Oklahoma you would still receive the child support until the amount owed is cleared. My mother is still receiving c/s on my sister and I...she is 26 and I am 21.

  • In florida you recieve until it is paid up--or if the child is in college here the parent must still pay until they graduate from college. But 18 is legally an adult and can't be emancipated at that point.

  • your ex is an idiot but let him waste his money to let the court tell him that. I'm receiving back child support and my baby is 30! You would think he would use the atty fee money to pay on his arrearage. what a jerk to not want to help his own child. He should really look up the definition of emanicipation

  • He's a jackass. I agree with admckenzie. The judge will make it clear that he is loser father and owes the money, period.

  • he will still owe the back support no matter what. emacipating the kid does NOT forgive the back support.
