Hi there and thank you for your question,
I am a practicing attorney based in South Africa and I will assist you with your question. Please feel free to ask as many follow up questions in order to clarify your question. If you have a new question, you must please open a new thread.
You might have a court order which dictates for how long you need to support your child for. e.g. "until she is 21 years old or self-sufficient".
Even if you don't have a such a court order, your child can apply for maintenance from you until you die.
If there is a part of the answer which you need more advice on, or clarity please continue in this same thread instead of opening a new question.
