I live in VA and my son lives in Philadelphia. My son turns 18 in two weeks but doesn't graduate until next year as a result of his mother holding him back. I voluntarily pay child support I discussed with my son that I will continue to partially support him until he finds s job,but will not continue to send support to his mother. I raised him to be self-sufficient at a young age but feel his mother prevents him from doing the things he needs to do at his current age.
