Does anyone have experience of paying child support {for a 22 year old Down Syndrome child} indefinately? Does it lagally ever end since she does receive quite a bit of money from SSI?

It depends on what state you live in as the laws vary. However, if a child receives SSI, then usually a child support order can be suspended, even if the child is not emancipated. However, your child is 22 years old. So that alone should warrant suspension of child support. The only reason you should still be paying is if this is an arrears only case.
