Me: Some judges are actually awarding college tuition in some cases now, so adult kids have been suing their parents.amphian: Sounds like I was born too early.Actually, I missused the word now. I know of this happening 20 years ago. A girl in college with me sued her father for college tuition. He was paying full fare for her step brothers and sisters and ignoring her. The courts felt this to be unjust. I have heard of other cases more recently, but don't know them directly.The real difference between dumping a spouse vs dumping a kid (assuming the kid is an adult) is that the spouse has a contract and can use it to sue, but the kid has nothing.Me: I'm not sure I understand your comment, unless you thought the parent-support the original poster mentioned was about making it legally mandatory for parents to support their kids. Isn't this already the case?Amph: I didn't write the first quote, but I agree with it.You may very well agree with it, but it is a case of taking my comments out of context and has nothing to do with the original definition of Parental-support. I was putting them back in context.InParadise
