My mom withdrew me from school when i was being bullied, refused to let me re-enroll into a different school and now is forcing me to enroll when i’m 2 weeks away from being 18 because she realizes she’ll lose child support if i’m not enrolled. The only reason she’s sending me back to school is so she doesn’t loose the money.
If you're not yet 18, you have to do what your mother says. When you turn 18, you become an adult and can do what you want.
In all of your discussions, does the importance of graduating and earning a diploma ever get mentioned? That should be your main focus - not bullying, child support, or anything else.
PS -- she is not going to "loose" the money. She might LOSE it. "Loose" is when your pants are too big; "lose" is when something disappears.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
