You are right there are many exceptions to this rule when it comes to welfare and children of divorced parents. I believe though that if there are none of those issues present parents do not have responsibility for their children after 18 and they are out of high school. It does seem strange and unfair that divorced parents are required to pay support until the child is out of college. I'm not sure what the reasoning is there.<quoted text> The welfare says that it is the sole owner of all rights as to who pays support for the children until twenty one. They do not emancipate or set free kids under 18 as a ten year old would be illeagle. Parents are liable for collage kids until their last full year before they turn twenty five for the costs of their going to collage. Kids drinking and under twenty one gave their parents much trouble and when the age went to twenty one in N.Y. State in the early seventies I believe they were held responsible for their own actions. They did their time or paid their fines.In 2004 a kid at 16 could leave one parent and live with the other in a broken home. In I believe 2005 that was changed to eighteen. The county said you had to go through the courts when they could leave at sixteen but the sherriffs dept said they can just up and leave and move every other day if they so please. They can move at eighteen but the parents are liable through the social services if they should ever go for help before twenty one. Check the county that has the controll as they are saying they do.
