Please note that this is a case which is scheduled for June 6 in Brooklyn Family Court. Please find enclosed a copy of the petition. I filed this petition because of the following reasons:1. I am paying about $800.00 a month as child support for my son who is now 18 1/2 years old. In addition, I have been spending an average of $150 a month in terms of allowance and cell phone spending for him. After he graduated from high school last year. he promised he would take a year off before going to college. He has since then renounced to this plan as he refused to go to school and to work. He is spending his days sleeping and his nights online. His mother
is a Registered Nurse of New York who stopped working for no reason. The child support is the only leverage I have to seek change in my son's situation.2. Please advise me on what the law says when the 19-21 years old refuse to comply with REASONABLE PARENTAL DEMANDS OF A CHILD SUPPORT PROVIDER. My demands are completely ignored and I fear that they may be major issues beneath the surface:a. Go to College, Trade School, or Go to work.
b. Adopt a decent appearance. (My son has not have a hair cut for 3 years plus. He avoids all family, religious, and social events) As I wrote in the enclosed petition, "Overall the child appearance calls for concerns as he looks like a BEAST LIVING IN A JUNGLE".
c. Accept to see a counselor, psychologist, etc
d. Accept to enter a weight loss program as he is over 300 pounds overweight while there is DIABETES IN THE FAMILY.3. His mother is a lunatic who is consistently ignoring family concerns regarding this child...4. Last but not least, if I do not deserve to have a reasonable say in the life of this child, WHY SHOULD I BE SUPPORTING HIM? This is why I am asking for help...Thank you.
