Question: My ex has sole physical custody of my 17 year old child and has just kicked her out. Is there a law against this?
The parent has a legal obligation to provide his or her children with the basic necessities of life, including food, clothing, and shelter. Unless the child is legally emancipated, these obligations will apply until the child turns 18 years old. If the child is unruly and a burden on the parent, legal processes still need to be taken in order to relieve the parent of their obligations to the child.
