The court may order either or both parents to support a child in the manner specified by the order:

  • Until the child is 18 years of age or until graduation from high school, whichever occurs later.
  • Until the child is emancipated through marriage, through removal of the disabilities of minority by court order, or by other operation of law.
  • Until the death of the child.
  • If the child is disabled as defined in this chapter, for an indefinite period.

The court may order that child support be paid by periodic payments, a lump sum payment, and annuity purchase, the setting aside of property to be administered for the support of the child as specified in the order, or an combination of these methods. The court shall also order medical support for the child, as well as order income withholding to secure the payment of child support.
