Change In Emancipation Law

The Indiana legislature enacted a new law regarding emancipation of a child. Beginning July 1, 2012, a child nineteen (19) years of age will be considered emancipated and no further child support would have to be paid unless the child has a disability or is a special needs child. Additionally, a child receiving child support under an order issued before July 1, 2012 may file a petition for educational needs until the child turns twenty-one (21) years old. A child who receives support under an order issued after June 30, 2012 may petition for educational needs until the child turns nineteen (19) years old.
