Support over the age of 18?
Well, as most of you know, I have teenage step children. Well, two of them will be turning 18 in a month. This issue does come up as the kids get older! So look out. To make matters even more complicated...let us throw in the bio daughter whom is now 21 years old. Ok, the 18 year old steps think they should not have to contribute, although they are working. I just informed my step daughter, things are a changing around here. She makes $80.00 weekly and blows every cent. Then she still feels we should continue to buy her the basics and plus! Meanwhile, she goes her merry way. In today's world, according to the courts, you must pay support in NY, until they are 21 now. Geez, what happened to the old days. I was told I had to get a job and pay room and board. I was expected to contribute. Now, I think the "new" adults expect us to give them a free ride for a few years...until they can slide into the comfey job. Anyhow, any thoughts on this?
