Oregon Child Support Program

Support for a Child Attending School

Children attending any school at least age 18 and under age 21 may be entitled to receive child support payments from their parent(s) if there is a current child support order.

The Child Support Program must review each application as certain conditions must be met before services will be provided:

  • There must be a current child support order or judgment providing for the support

  • The judgment must not be fully satisfied in the court records

  • The child must not be emancipated (married, military, legally emancipated)

  • The child support order or judgment providing for the support of the child must have child attending school or ORS 107.108 language

Please be aware that child attending school laws are different for each state and not all states allow for support to continue after age 18. Eligibility to continue receiving support is dependant on the laws of the state where the child support order was created. This is true even if Oregon has revised or modified the other state's order.

If you believe that you or your child is eligible to receive support or continue receiving support because they are attending school, please select one of the following to obtain the appropriate application packet.
