Child Support in California goes until the child is 18 years old AND out of High School, OR 19 years of age. Child support stops by operation of law, which means you just stop paying.

Your question depends upon what state established the order. If the child support order is a California order, it terminated no later than age 19, so it doesn't matter if she is married now or not. If it is a New York order, you would need to check the laws of that state (I am not licensed in New York).
