Ok, thank you for your reply.

meigs004 :

Legally, your mother is under no obligation to support you once you reach the age of majority which is 19 years old. While I am sure you are a good person and not a trouble maker, your mother can kick you out of the home, as you would be a legal adult. There really is not much that can be done to force a mother to pay for college expenses and keep the individual in their home.
