Child support is payable until at least age 19 ( the age of majority in BC) and beyond that for so long as the child is unable by reason of disability, illness or other cause (such as full time or part time education or training) to withdraw from dependence upon a parent. At a minimum he is obligated to pay until the 19th birthday, and often if the child is in university that will continue at least until the first degree (age 23 or 24), but there are cases where support has been ordered to continue for a 30 year old going for his PHD.
