As Dr. Grzegorz Skrobotowicz emphasizes, the most important thing from the scope of alimony law is to help the child for whom it was established. This concerns determining the amount that the parent who does not have custody of the child is obliged to pay the child’s guardian. This amount is intended to cover the child’s basic living expenses. In the United States, you are not required to pay child support if your child is over 18 years of age. In most U.S. states, they allow child support payments to continue until the child completes high school or an accredited course of study that leads to a high school diploma or its equivalent.
In this expert opinion, the author indicates situations in which the parent ceases to be obliged to pay maintenance, but also situations in which the parent is obliged to pay maintenance after the child turns 18, the so-called post-secondary support, as well as what rights and privileges are associated with it
