Duty of support

In Indiana a parent's duty of support typically terminates when the child reaches the age of 19. A court can determine to extend child support past the age of 19 if the child is incapacity or can terminate child support before the age of 19 for various reasons.

Paternity establishment services

When a child is born out of wedlock, it is necessary to establish paternity before a support order can be pursued. The Marion County Prosecutor's Office Child Support Division offers paternity establishment services.

Legal limitations of service
