An 18-year-old New Jersey girl is suing her parents to keep paying her private school and future college tuition, but she's not living at home anymore
Rachel Canning claims she was kicked out of her parents' Lincoln Park home when she turned 18.But her parents say their "spoiled" daughter didn't live by the house rules and left of her own accord.
The Morris Catholic High School senior has been living at the home of a classmate instead.
"My parents have rationalized their actions by blaming me for not following their rules," Rachel Canning said in court papers, according to The Daily Record of Morristown, N.J. "They stopped paying my high school tuition to punish the school and me and have redirected my college fund, indicating their refusal to afford me an education as a punishment."
She is demanding her parents pay her Morris Catholic tuition bill of $5,306 as well as $12,597 in accrued legal fees. She also wants them to pay for her to go to college.
This case is now raising questions. Should parents be forced to pay for their child's school and living costs after they turn 18?
