Courts that handle child support in Oklahoma City and around the rest of the state of Oklahoma consider the child’s best interests and ensure they are protected with each financial decision. When you head to court, you need to make sure you have an aggressive Oklahoma City child support attorney by your side.

The court will then determine how much child support the non-custodial parent will need to contribute for child care, medical care, dental care and other child raising expenses.
Child Support Length Varies
There’s often a misconception that child support runs out when the child reaches 18 years old. Oklahoma statutes that deal with child support say, “Except [where the child has disabilities], any child shall be entitled to support by the parents until the child reaches eighteen (18) years of age. If a child is regularly enrolled in and attending high school, as set forth in Section 11-103.6 of Title 70 of the Oklahoma Statutes, other means of high school education, or an alternative high school education program as a full-time student, the child shall be entitled to support by the parents until the child graduates from high school or until the age of twenty (20) years, whichever occurs first.
