Educational Neglect! Parte Deux

thinkthrice's picture

So I did some research on New York state law about educational neglect.  Seems the law only applies to kids up until age 17.   The houseshitter turns 17 the first week of January so I doubt anything will happen over the next two and a half months.

I can easily see him dropping out of school at age 17.  He has a huge rebellious/defiance streak, much larger than the older two, so if he does become a runaway that is an emancipation event and the Girhippo officially goes off the payroll.

Of course she will do her best to keep that hidden or she may cooperate like she did the last time only because she got caught hiding the OSS emancipation.

If he drops out can you do something to declare in the courts that he is emancipated so you can stop CS?

He might get a wild hair and move out of the Gurhippo house. That would end CS, if Chef can prove it.

Fingers crossed that he drops out. Because, really, except for getting the Girhippo off the payroll, it will make no difference. This kid isn't learning a thing.

It won't get her off the payroll unless he moves out of her home. And even then, I bet the court would still make him pay CS until he's 18 at least.

I don't know how much CS is, but I feel like if he did drop out I would offer to pay his rent (6 month lease) on a studio apartment JUST to cut BM out of the equation! As soon as he moves out, file to terminate CS.

They ALL know where we live, are within 20 minutes of us by car and all have their licenses/are driving.  Went down to $320 a month.  Used to be $350 a WEEK and Chef was making $25 an hour TOPS.  Chef would often "bring home" $65 - $100 a week while taking up much more than that when his ferals were coming over EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND and skyrocketing my utility bills, shopping spree bills, guilty daddy spending.

DH is paying $675 for one kid. BM wants that number to be $1100. She keeps fighting but until she releases her own income it isn't going to happen. If she does we believe it will actually go down to closer to $400. But I would rather pay anyone other than BM. Even if it costed more for a few months, it would be worth it to end CS.

My DH pays $1027 for one almost 20-year-old who spends all of his time gaming and sleeping.

Haha none of these kids ever contact their father. They’re completely estranged and have been for a decade.

Thats right, ..zip contact. Unless another court date is coming up then contact is for the big squeeze to say "I called my dad" seeeeee he is still the "bad man".
