Post Totaly lost , once again...

Hello,

I'm a single Dad, divorced since 6 yrs now. I have been looking at 2 of my 3 kids. Things were going well, after a disastrous divorce that left me completely broke and out of energy. But over those 6 yrs I got back on my feet and spend all my energy over my family…. 3 Boys together, woo Our life should be “great” …

My older son turn 16 last February, he is a “teen”, with teen come “teen problem” and for sure he went to it... not critical, but important enough to take action.

Since he got in some problems my 16 yrs old Son will like to move out of my house and go live with his mother in Quebec City…

On the other side, “my Ex” do support the decision and she plan ahead to collect more Child Support….

This situation jeopardizes my life and will devastate me financially, I can not support any other expense and I will be force to sell house to provide for the move and support of my childs.

My Question is:
“What are my obligations toward my 16 yrs old son, that will decide to move out of my house and go live with his mother?

Any Help

Thank You

Are you in Ontario or Quebec? If the child is attending school full time you will be obligated to pay child support for him.

(4) the child becomes self-supporting,
(5) the child obtains one post-secondary degree or diploma,
(6) the child turns X years of age (often 23 or 24 years old),
(7) the child marries,
(8) the child dies, or
(9) a party dies, provided that life insurance is in place at the time of death.

I'm not sure if Quebec & Ontario laws are the same, but I beleive you will have to pay child support.

Yes I assume child support will be a must until he is 18.
If you are asking whether he is "allowed" to go, yes he is. It is his choice and there is little you can do.
