A court can order that a parent pay child support until the minor child's death, emancipation or age of majority, whichever takes place first. The parties engaged in a romantic relationship that produced a child and they did not marry. In August 2010, at the time of birth, the defendant, who works as a landscaper and snowplower, signed an acknowledgment of paternity. The defendant earns $800 gross per week and has $51,779 in his bank account. The plaintiff earns $550 gross per week as a nanny and a housekeeper. The court ordered the defendant to pay child support for the 2-year-old child of $128 per week, until the minor child's death, emancipation or age of majority, whichever takes place first. The court approved the parties' plan for parenting the minor child.
