Hi Everyone, I am new here please forgive me if answer is already posted elsewhere. I have a child who is soon to be 20 yrs old. He had been causing problems at home by not wanting to go to college or work more than PT 4-8 hrs a week. The rest of the time he would hermit himself in his room playing video games on the computer or watch TV. He would not help with anything around the house, curse at myself and my wife and he has physically attacked me in the past. I also have a younger son at home as well and he is subjected to all of this. He has ADHD and started to sell his medications for money and we told him all of this has to stop or he has to leave. We are residents of Mass., he hopped a train to NY (where he grew up) and is working fast food. He went to social services for assistance and they stated that in NY a parent is financially responsible for a child until the age of 21. They told him that I may have to pay support for him. I never told him to go to NY and I am not a NY state resident and neither is he. Am I financially responsible for him? If so, how is this possible for a resident of another state to be subjected to the standard of law in a state they do not live in? Should I consult an attorney. Thank you all in advance.
