I can’t believe what I’m reading. I’ve always understood that once a kid was 18 they were on their own. Sure, I continue to help out my loving and courteous daughters but it’s entirely voluntary because I care about them.
Now the law is saying we’re on the hook until some asshole judge says we’re not? :eek:
Some rebellious daughter that tells you to F off while she shacks up with a guy that pimps her out? We’re supposed to be on the hook for that 18 year old crack loving skank?
This was a NJ state law. I wonder how many other states are this fucked up? This is just so screwed up and wrong.
In this case the girl is just starting her rebellious journey. There’s still time to turn her around. I’m sure the parents are hoping tough love and some hard times on her own will turn her around. Move back home and follow the household rules. Instead she’s suing her parents.
For now, a judge has rejected the spoiled brat’s case.But, this law even existing scares the heck out of me. The repercussions of being legally forced to support a adult child is disturbing. The lawyer even says you’re on the hook for college even after a hiatus. So the kid goes out and gets drunk and stoned for a few years and then decides to make a half-assed stab at college? You’re on the hook?
