Recent Emancipation questions

My daughter live with her mentally abusive and unstable mom.

My daughter live with her mentally abusive and unstable mom. Im preparing to go to court to change her living arrangements to come live with me and reverse child support. Her mom has been trying to throw her out to live with me but pretending its all my daughters choice. She even called the old lawguardian to manipulate her against my daughter, and my daughter said it seemed to work, because she called the law guardian and she was siding with her mother. Very bad, her mom is very good at lying and manipulating people and covering her own bad behavior. Does the law guardian have any involvement at this point? Shes 19? I don't want my daughter to move in with me until we are in court because the mom will accuse her of leaving on her own, as if she emancipated herself, because the mom doesn't want to pay child support. My agreement says emancipation is 21 and my daughter is a full time college student only works 10 hours a week. What can I do and what about this law guardian? Does law guardian even play a part at this point?

I live in NJ and receive child support for my 20 year old full time college student. Our divorce states that my ex husband and I split college expenses, including room, board, etc 50/50.I need to relocate out of the area. My child will continue going to the same university, but is going to share an apartment with other students. If my ex and I agree on a budgeted amount for these living expenses, can child support continue as is?

Is it true that the legal age to move out in SC is 17? I

Is it true that the legal age to move out in SC is 17? I have read that if you are 17, you cannot be charged with being a runaway, and that the police cannot bring you home; that at 17 you are considered to be able to make decisions for yourself, even though you have not reached 18. I would just like to know if this is true. Thank you :)

I'm not sure if this is the right sub-law to be asking this

I'm not sure if this is the right sub-law to be asking this of, but I have a question regarding a 17 year old's rights. He is a family friend of mine and I am trying to help by getting as much information as possible on the matter. He is getting SSI from his recently deceased father, but it is going into his mother's account. She has had all of his personal forms (birth certificate, social security card, any SSI paperwork) from him, and refuses to even let him know what his SS number is. She has not let him even get a basic state I.D. Is any of this legal treatment?
