I understand that child support over the age of 18 is at the discretion of the court if the child plans to attend college. Does the amount of support stay the same once a child turns 18? This is a rare situation where the mother's earnings are substantial compared to the father's. The mother's household earns enough that the child does not qualify for financial aid. While it is appropriate that the support continue, I am curious if the child's age factors into a support total on the MA support worksheet.
