My son is 18 and has lived with s Mom until he graduated gh

My son is 18 and has lived with his Mom until he graduated high school then he moved in with me. When we divorced we agreed on neither of us paying child support, so there is no order for it. However I had been giving her $50 a week until he moved in with me. Now she says I owe her the $50 a week still. Do I? Also how do we decide who or how college is divided? We live in Indiana.

I have paid child support for a child since paternity was established. The mother and I were teens at conception. However the grandmother moved the child's mother away and my child. They did not apply for anything until said child was 8. I pay my percentage for support and half the medical policies and bills. I have never ever been allowed contact with said child. I have been married to my wife for 13 yrs we have two sons. There are two issues here . one I have children whom want to know their sister and we have never even spoke one time. Two in ny state is it possible to vacate an order for support if said child is 18 and there has never been a relationship allowedJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: nyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: no, the child will be 18 in november and I have never spoke with her.

I am the parent of an 18 year old who is a drug and alcohol

I am the parent of an 18 year old who is a drug and alcohol user. I live in Nebraska. State Law says that a person is not a legal adult until the age of 19. From the information I have already gathered, I cannot force him into a drug evaluation and treatment program even thought he is still a minor. Am I allowed to evict him from my home until he agrees to get help? My goal is not abandon him but to force him to hit bottom so he'll change his mindset that what he is doing is wrong and will get help. He has graduated high school. Any information you can provide me on my legal rights as a parent would be appreciated. Thank you.

I am wondering how I would go about getting emmancipated.

Hello I am wondering how I would go about getting emmancipated. Currently at the moment i have read the age of majority rules in my state so i am aware that it is possible for me to qualify for this. Currently i am above the age of majority, i live seperatley of my parents but reside with my grandparents and pay them rent, i have not recieved money from my parents in three years, and soon i will be going away to collage. I also currently have a job making minimum wage. Due to New York state law the four requirements for automatic emmancipation are be At least 16; Living separately from the parents; Not relying on parents for living expenses; and Able to manage his or her financial affairs. I am looking for emmancipation to be my own individual who is independent because in new york state untill you are 24 you are still under your parents. My question is how would i go about getting emmancipated and what would be the cost and time frame it would take to do so. Thank you
