namatad: scottydoesntknow: That's gonna be an awkward Thanksgiving

Meh, once my mom started calling my GFs stupid whores, I pretty much stopped going to family events.
Strange, my mom was upset when I did this. I cant for the life of me imagine why.

You should've just yelled at her "They learned it from you mom! They learned it by watching YOU!"

Yes. I bet he is.

brimed03: And the USMC made a man outta him.  Not being snarky, and it's probably true.  But note carefully the order of that: after he joined, they made a man-- and adult-- out of him.  You don't provide a lot of context so I don't know what your intent was with this comment, but to me it's just another sad example of parents failing at their responsibilities and the military being our society's main option for those kids who have the guts-- or lack the options-- to let that organization help them grow up.

Imagine that.  The lone superpower and the only organized way we have of helping kids grow up is to train them for killing.

So they...  The marines, they had sex with him?

Crewmannumber6: Fissile: Apparently dad kicked out his little snowflake because he didn't approve of her boyfriend.  I'm gonna guess the boyfriend was too, oh, I don't know, too black?   Jersey cops are so racist, they make the KKK look like the Rainbow coalition by comparison.

Nothing like a little unfounded speculation to unnecessarily inflame a thread.

Seriously. What the shizzle, my Fissle?

Degenz: Welp, there you go. College financial aide workers are the scummiest of scum. Worse even than the fly-by-night mortgage lenders who gave away houses with no down payment and caused the Great Recession of 2008 and made the government bail them out.

Yup. That's me.

durbnpoisn: Okay, let's annalyze this...

Her side:
"My parents put unrealistic restrictions on my lifestyle.  Meaning, I have to follow a curfew, and drop my loser boyfriend.  So, I left the house.  To punish me, they now refuse to pay for all of the things that support my life."

The parent's side:
"We lay down rules to keep her safe, including, following a curfew, and dropping the boyfriend that is a bad influence on her life.  She didn't agree with that, so she left to live with him.  So, I don't see why we should be paying for her.  She's an adult.  She made a decision to move out."

I'm pretty sure I've got that right.
How any court could hold up a case on this, is beyond me.  The fact that her boyfriend's father is footing the legal bill, potentially says there is more to her side of the story, in that she got him to believe she HAD to leave that horrible situation.
But the fact is, she walked out.  She wasn't kicked out.  She voluntarily left.  Yet she still expects her parents to foot the bill for her life.

It would be idiotic for the courts to even entertain this.  But, if they are willing to pay for it, the courts will have to, I suppose.

No, he's footing the bill cuz she is slobbing on his knob.

tlars699: TheYeti: tlars699: thurstonxhowell: BalugaJoe: I paid for both of  my degrees.  Why do parents have to pay for anything?

They don't have to pay for anything. It is a tremendous dick move to not at least fill out the FAFSA, though.

Wrong. You sign up for a student loan? Part of the law says that if you default they can hound your parents, too. It's in the contract you sign to get the loan.

They can contact the people that you listed as contacts/references, but if they don't sign off on it (Perkins loans, Stafford) the parents aren't legally required to pay for anything.

Then please explain to me why when my parents never co-signed a loan (because they automatically refuse anything to do with "co-sign"), Sallie Mae kept calling them for payment when I was in default, due to unemployment after graduation.

They are contractually obligated to pay for their children. Said so to me over the phone, when I asked the representative at the time, as I had set up the default terms.

Oh, well hell, if a bill collector said it to you over the phone, it might as well have been the word of god.

OregonVet: tlars699: Wrong. It's in the contract with any public loan company like Sallie Mae, or Great Lakes. In both, if you default, your parents are obligated to assist you in paying those back.

Okay, Ill chalk this one up to either nice troll or you are a potato. Choose only one.

$120 though... I'd take her to dinner and a movie, if it meant that I got to take her to town afterwards...

tlars699: 1. Parents are obliged to assist or pay all school loans of the kid going to school especially if the kid defaults. HINT TO IDIOT-GIRL: GO TO COLLEGE. DEFAULT. THEY HAVE TO PAY. DUH!

2. If they set up a college fund in her name, then she gets that money for school, regardless of house rules.

3. You are considered a child by FAFSA until the ripe old age of 26- when you are no longer able to be carried on your parents' health insurance.

4. You aren't supposed to claim a dependent on your taxes, unless they've lived with you for over 6 months of the year, or you are paying for their schooling.

5. She is totes banging the lawyer.

Ok, so..one of those things is accurate.

1) Unless there is a specific divorce decree, parents are in no way, shape or form, required to pay for college. Unless they co-signed the loan, or took out their own loan, they are also not required to pay a student loan.

2) Unless it is a trust that the student has total access to (very, very rare) a college fund is transferable.

3) You are considered a dependent student until you are 24

4) You can claim a child if you paid more than 50% of their support, regardless of age

5) This one is correct.

what_now: Both sides will be in court Tuesday. Rachel Canning wants the court not to emancipate her, because under the law, a parent has an obligation to support any child who cannot stand on his or her own financially.

Um. Bullshiat. You're 18 years old. You aren't a child.

Rachel also said every piece of financial paperwork she fills out asks her that question and shows she clearly doesn't have the means to support herself.

If you're filling out financial aid paperwork for college, you are using your parents information. If your parents won't fill out the forms, you are just right farked.

Now, if she said "My dad refuses to complete the FAFSA", I'd feel bad for her but legally, she's farked. I have had dozens of students over the years tell me that their parents won't complete the FAFSA, for all sorts of reasons. In some cases, it was a ploy to get more financial aid. In some cases, the parents withdrew financial support because they didn't like the kid's major/grades/boyfriend/attitude etc.

In some cases, the parents were just simply dickbags. Even then- there isn't a whole lot you can do.

Inglesino said he has spent more than $12,000 on the lawsuit because he wants Rachel to have a great future.

Oh. he's farking her.

You're a Financial Aid counselor/officer? Ouch. You have my deepest sympathies.

/given the choice, I'd admin in FinAid somewhere before serving as Putin's secret towel boy but somewhere after forced listening to Sarah Palin's complete set of public utterances. Both would break my sanity, but only FinAid admin would break my heart.

We could start by not calling an 18 year old a child.
Call them adults, toss the case out, laugh at the distraught parents who think they can control who their daughter dates.
