In BC, child support remains payable for any child under the age of 19 so long as they have not withdrawn from the charge of their parents, and it can remain payable for children over the age of 19 who are unable to withdraw from the charge of their parents. A child might be unable to withdraw from the charge of their parents for a number of reasons, but the two most common are a disability or post-secondary education. Child support in such scenarios may deviate from the Federal Child Support Guidelines depending on a number of factors, but will ultimately reflect the “condition, means, needs and other circumstances of the child and the financial ability of each spouse to contribute to the support of the child.”
