The new statute modifies when child support will end. Before the statute was passed, child support did not automatically end when the child reached the age where child support should terminate. The old law required parties to obtain a new court order, at the time the child reached the age of majority, modifying or ending child support. The new statute provides that for all child support award orders entered after October 1, 2010, the court must provide dates when the child support obligation should be modified or terminated.
