SD is a train wreck. She is a nice girl, but hasn't really grown up, although she is 19, turning 20 this summer. She has mental health issues as well (suicide attempt in March of last year).
Last year over the 2016-2017 school year, she re-enrolled in high school even though she had already graduated. She said she just wasn't ready for college yet. Her mother told her, either go to school or get a job. So, she found a "loophole" (her words). She enrolled in one class, and didn't even go to that half the time. Since she wasn't a full time student and was over the age of 18, DH was not obligated to pay child support. He did anyway.
Now, this year, she enrolled in community college for the 2017-2018 school year. She started taking a program, but wasn't really liking it. The teachers went on strike and she lost several weeks, but there was a plan to reduce Christmas hours etc. to make up some of the time. She found another "loophole" when they offered tuition refunds due to the strike and dropped out of college. She has applied for a September program at the same college (different program) and has been accepted.
What to do, what to do? Should DH stop paying child support until she returns to school in September? My fear is that because BM lives paycheck to paycheck, she will tell SD19 to move in with us.
Should we (he) leave well enough alone?
