When Children Sue Their Parents – Go To Mediation

ok…really????? Facts: girl left her parent’s house days before turning 18 claiming she is an adult and now sues for weekly support and remaining payments for high school tuition. Issue: are parents obligated to financially support their daughter.

Um…go home kid…right now AND I MEAN NOW!

Thank God the judge ordered the case to mediation. I think a good mediation process can cut through the emotional baggage in this case – and there is a lot. The courts are absolutely not the answer here. And I think lawyers should not be present at this mediation…God forbid rights are compromised…I don’t want to hear it…this family deserves a chance to work things out without positional bargaining in the middle.
