Judge: No, parents can’t be forced to financially support their disobedient 18-year-old child

posted at 4:41 pm on March 5, 2014 by Allahpundit

C’mon. In the new America, you’re not really an adult until you’re 26. Maybe longer, depending on the next unilateral executive rule change.

This case had to end this way, didn’t it?

Rachel Canning, a senior at Morris Catholic High School, went to court to force her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, to pay her child support, her private school tuition, medical and related bills, college expenses and legal fees. Canning is an honor student and athlete, but her parents have stopped paying her bills because, they say, she would not obey their rules…

Her parents countered that she voluntarily left home because she didn’t want to abide by house rules, such as being respectful, keeping a curfew, doing a few chores and ending a relationship with a boyfriend they said was a bad influence…

She said the Cannings treated their daughter in an “abnormal” way that made it “untenable” for her to stay in the house. For instance, Helfand said, Sean Canning would not allow Rachel to have a boyfriend while a senior in high school. Rachel Canning also claims her parents are abusive, contributed to an eating disorder she developed and pushed her to get a basketball scholarship…

The judge also cited certifications submitted by the Sean and Elizabeth Canning about their daughter’s alleged history of staying out and drinking during the week. Once, he said, she was driven home by her boyfriend’s parents at 3 a.m.

Rachel claims that her father was “inappropriately affectionate” with her, which, if true, makes her new financial predicament an egregious injustice and, if false, makes her the Bad Seed. (The verdict is already in online.) She’s stuck now with a $5,300 tuition bill for her first semester of senior year of high school. One odd wrinkle at first blush about this very odd case is that the outcome seems to turn heavily on perceptions of the girl’s behavior even though that’s seemingly not the issue. The issue, you might think, is purely whether a mother and father can be held responsible financially for a child who’s reached legal age. Watch the clip below and you’ll find the judge scolding her for being disrespectful to her parents, a reference to a witheringly profane voicemail message Rachel left for her mother awhile back. If she had been a perfect angel, ruthlessly booted from the house on her 18th birthday by her cheapskate parents, should the ruling have gone the other way?

Actually … yeah, probably:

Though Canning is 18 years old, New Jersey law does not consider a person to be emancipated unless that person has left “the scope of his or her parents’ authority,” according to [lawyer Stephanie Frangos] Hagan.

“A parent is not obligated to contribute to the support of an emancipated child,” said Hagan. “A child is emancipated when he or she is beyond the control of the parents. Is she truly beyond the scope of her parents’ authority, as a result of her own voluntary acts? That’s for the judge to decide.”…

“To be clear, my clients never abandoned nor abused their child and they have asked her to come home. They simply sought to exert their own parental judgment and reasonable household rules which she is not willing to accept,” [the parents' attorney, Laurie] Rush-Masuret said in court Tuesday.

If the issue is as simple as “is she of legal age or isn’t she?” then all the behavioral stuff is beside the point. Mom and dad have an absolute right to cut her off when she’s 18, whether she deserves tough love or not. But apparently it’s not as simple as that; be an angel and remain within your parents’ “control” and they’re still on the hook to support you. There … must be an age limit to that idea (I hope), but in this case it’s immaterial. That’s why the judge cares so much whether she’s been disrespectful or disobedient. The more rebellious she is, the stronger the parents’ argument that she’s effectively emancipated herself and is on the hook for her own tuition going forward. Long story short: If you want to mooch off mom and dad, be nice.

Great news!!!
Can I cut off MY kids now too?

dentarthurdent on March 5, 2014 at 4:44 PM

Many private colleges offer extremely generous financial aid for undergrads, often in the form of grants, especially when there is no parental help.

As for her private high school tuition, I think it is rather rotten for her parents to not pay that. Take away her car, her allowance, etc. but don’t leave her with debt to pay for high school.

bluegill on March 5, 2014 at 4:46 PM

Good, the legal precedent from that would be a nightmare. Sounds like the spoiled little shiat got what she deserved. Nothing.

Not much surprises me these days. This was incredible. The Inglesino family should be counter-sued for legal fees, pain and suffering. Their support and enabling of Ms Canning probably kept her from doing the right thing and going back home to her parents rules.

Thanksgiving is going to be awkward this year.

hawkdriver on March 5, 2014 at 4:51 PM

It sounds like what they need is family counciling. Kids wanted to be adults at 18. They want the perks but not the responsibilities. Don’t think this is over, though. The liberals will be all over it finding different ways to make parents responsible.

Everything seems to be headed in that direction. If we keep delaying adulthood methinks the legal age to vote needs to be increased to match it.

This is nothing new. 1,000 years ago it was common for marriage to happen in the early teens, that was considered adulthood. An unmarried woman age 18 was a Spinster…

ConstantineXI on March 5, 2014 at 4:56 PM

Ya – actually, part of why I’m still helping them out with some things – totally voluntary.
Mine are 21 and 23, both are out of the house and have good jobs, and the younger one just bought his own house (with a little down payment help from me).

But I’ll be paying for the older one’s college for many more years….

The parents might be far from angels themselves, and they raised her. Screwing with your kid’s high school experience like that is a low blow, and I can understand why the girl would be furious. Not paying for college is one thing, but leaving your child on the hook for high school tuition, after they’ve been at the same school since freshman year and after you’ve essentially committed to paying for it, is nasty. Don’t cause problems for your child at their school, especially when they are working hard as a student.

Are there no public schools? No one has a “right” to a private school education.

She’s 18. If she still wants mom and dad’s financial support, she has to accept their rules to get it. Otherwise, the armed services are hiring everyday.

Looks like the Princess fell short of her goal to ‘squeeze’ mom and dad, especially since she has a huge set of cojones, herself. Her best bet is to go to the O’ Exchange for her free healthcare, get in the short line for a purse fulla Obama phones, get a pocket fulla EBT cards, and apply for subsidized housing and free city bus rides. Her clothes will be supplied by a multitude of sources, while she rides high on her Income Tax Credit ‘paycheck’. Don’t git me stahtid…

I know many will be quick to dismiss it, but none of us really know. There are plenty of crappy, abusive parents out there.

Conservative4Ever on March 5, 2014 at 5:11 PM

There are a couple of issues at play here that have not been covered very thoroughly. Yes a child becomes an adult at age 18, with caveats. High School Graduation is that drop dead date, which she has not yet achieved. Most courts will include the extra time it takes to clear that hurdle for most legal situations. The next issue in this particular case is the usage of 529 college tuition plans or a Coverdell IRA. In that case, she is a named beneficiary, while not the funds owner. While the account in question is revocable in terms of beneficiary, it is possible that a grand parent contributed to it, in which case the Judge may wish to ascertain their wishes as to whether her name can be removed as a beneficiary. I notice that he’s going to rule on that specifically in one month, probably after researching that bit of law, and asking the grandparents what they think of it all.

nextgen_repub on March 5, 2014 at 5:13 PM

Of course she can, but why rob her of her senior year experience and potentially hurt her academics.

No one has a “right” to a senior high school experience. Her parents don’t have the obligation to provide her with a social life up to her expectations, especially since she rejected their authority and moved out. Her personal happiness is not the responsibility of her parents.

I would guess that there are plenty of teenagers who don’t get the reap the benefits of a fun senior year: nerds, loners, military brats, teenage parents, foster children, the overtly studious, kids of drug addicted or otherwise irresponsible parents, kids from large families, kids with sick grandparents at home, kids whose parents have to move at one point or another, kids whose parents are simply not wealthy enough to pay for all of the expenses of prom and exotic school trips. I might have missed a few.

But guess what? Those kids will somehow live. Real life isn’t what was promised in Sweet Valley High.

Of course she can, but why rob her of her senior year experience and potentially hurt her academics.

Rob her???? Rob her??? She is a BRAT. All she has to do is be respectful of her parents rules and act like a nice young lady – how HARD IS THAT?

I see. I haven’t read all the details.

bluegill on March 5, 2014 at 5:05 PM…what else is new?

KOOLAID2 on March 5, 2014 at 5:27 PM

OK, well since Lorien isn’t here to speak for himself, I’ll channel him:
I’d hit that!

Hey – I tried already…
She needs a spanking – I’ll face the peril!!!
CurtZHP told me it was too perilous….

As for her private high school tuition, I think it is rather rotten for her parents to not pay that. Take away her car, her allowance, etc. but don’t leave her with debt to pay for high school.

Oh cry me a river. Poor, poor white girl problems.. Can’t get my mommy and daddy to pay for my PRIVATE high school tuition. If she wants to be an adult then she needs to act like one. Public school is virtually free.

Cute little whore, though. Reminds me of that Alicia Silverstone/Carey Elwes move I can’t remember the name of.

You’re right. What is their agenda and where would they find a lawyer to take this case?

crankyoldlady on March 5, 2014 at 4:54 PM

She moved in with a friend. Her friend’s dad is the lawyer for her.

ConservativeMom on March 5, 2014 at 5:29 PM

The fact that she felt the need to sue her parents at age 18 and assume she is owed tuition is enough proof that she’s a spoiled brat and needs some reality.

RovesChins on March 5, 2014 at 5:29 PM

Bluegill, why is your twitter account suspended?

Damn. I was hoping for a sweeping victory for the daughter simply for the insane entertainment value.

What was preventing her from going to public school?

dominigan on March 5, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Sadly, she will likely learn nothing from this experience, and will double down on her selfishness.

I see her crying herself to sleep after her first scene in front of a camera.

RovesChins on March 5, 2014 at 5:29 PM

and a spanking….

dentarthurdent on March 5, 2014 at 5:31 PM

She looks like like every stuck up little b!tch you knew in high school.

melle1228 on March 5, 2014 at 5:28 PM

Why do you bring race into it? Is she a more unsympathetic figure because she is white?
