Child Support in Vermont

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is child support payable in Vermont?

Child support is typically paid until the child turns 18 or graduates from high school — whichever is later.

Can I ask to change the child support amount after the final order?

Modifications can be requested by either party in the following circumstances: every 3 years; if there is a "real, substantial and unanticipated change in circumstances" (such as a disability or job loss); or if there is a change that would result in a calculation of the child support payment that is at least 10% higher or lower than the order.
