Can my 19 year old daughter sue her mother directly for

Can my 19 year old daughter sue her mother directly for child support, if I consent, if her mother asks her to leave her house, and she moves in to my house? Or do I have to file against her mother? Or can we file jointly against her if I want the support paid directly to my daughter? We live in NY State.

I am assisting a friend in a divorce proceeding in the state

I am assisting a friend in a divorce proceeding in the state of New Jersey. We have a final marital settlement agreement, but are questioning the advice on a number of points. I would like to post the agreement and have it reviewed with any concerns itemized. The actual dollar amount for the alimony, child support, and equitable distribution is not under question, nor does this include any review of other information -- purely an analysis of the clauses of the agreement and if any changes should be made in the concepts, or if anything is outright missing.

A 14 year old with spina bifida has recently come to live

A 14 year old with spina bifida has recently come to live with an unrelated lady after his mother was unable to continue raising him. . I believe the lady who has "volunteered" to keep him is doing this for the government check. I keep the young man most of the time. I own a moving service and run a tuition free Christian school with a total of 5 students (including the 14 year old). I hear stories from many people that the lady he lives with (who also keeps three other adults who get a government check) is mean and is not taking care of the kid. At times she has not been able to supply diapers or hot water. There are smoking issues, possibly lice issues and possibly drug issues in the home. I have told the 14 year old I would be happy to raise him (and I could do this without any government assistance). At what age or point could the 14 year old declare emancipation from this "care giver". Do you have any other ideas. The 14 year old does not want to chance going to DFCS and getting put into a foster family or institution (although I would think it would be better) but he also does not want to be separated from my care and school. Currently the "volunteer lady" lets him stay with me 4 or more days a week (and over night). I feel she reels him back in just to maintain that he lives with her (again to keep that government check coming). We are located in Georgia

My husband's daughter is back living with her mother. We had

My husband's daughter is back living with her mother. We had custody of her and all that changed last year. We went to court and now her residence is with her mother. She turned 18 this year and graduated high school. We have been giving her payments every week but never went to child support court. My question is: In NY state, if she is 18 and not going to college and not on disability(she isn't doing anything), do we still need to pay child support? Also she wants nothing to do with us.Thank you

Father has custody of my son who will be 16 in December. He

Father has custody of my son who will be 16 in December. He has had custody for the past 7 years. We have joint legal custody. My son this last summer decided he would rather live with me. At the time I was living in Wisconsin and have since then returned to Tucson Arizona to be with my son. My son has told me that he feels bullied by his father and his father's girlfriend and his father's mother. Once I save up enough money I plan on violin for a custody modification. My son is determined to get away from his father and has stated that the modification does not happen my son would like to file for emancipation once he turns 16. Until then his father is a fireman and work 24 hour shifts. During his 24-hour shifts my son stays with his father's mother overnight at her house. She does not allow contact between me and my son. Is there anyway that I can have my son while his father is working a 24-hour shift so he does not have to be with his grandmother? The paperwork that I have on the custody States his father has physical custody while we remain joint legal custody if I have to call the police will that work in getting my son away from his grandmother?
