Will My Mom Have To Pay Child Support If I Move Out?

I am 19 years old and I’m planning on living on my own possibly soon after the lease to our apartment is up in April. My mom has a section 8 voucher and I just refuse to move with her for personal reasons. I was told if I move out that I could receive child support from her up until my 21st birthday. I wanted to know if this is true and how if possible.

    I don’t think she should. You’re moving out, which means you must be strong and financially stable to look out for yourself.
    **EDIT**
    Excuse me, I do not know. If you want better answers or a better insight, You might want to Google child support requirements or speak with whoever was assigned to be in charge of your mother’s support.

    Hello there,
    If you’re mother in on section 8 and already needing assistance, why would you even bother putting her through that? You’re 19 years old and ou are electively moving out on your own. You MAY be heard in family court but if you are proving that you can live on your own independently then more than likely they will say no. If you did decide to go to family court and your mother is on public assistance you mar or may not get the minimum depending on how much she gets and if the judge / referee is sympathetic to your request. Is it really worth it for $20, $30. The amount of time it is received depends on where you live. In NYC its 21.

    No. Child support is for a minor’s parents,from one parent to another to assist in supporting the child they had together. You are an adult choosing to move. You are on your own.
    You are thinking about allowance. Parents pay their children allowance.

    Very rarely do children qualify for support after the age of 18. Generally, the only time a parent is ordered to keep on paying support for an adult child is if the child requires specialized care. If you’re able to move out on your own, it’s really unlikely you’d qualify for any support. You’re an adult, choosing to live on your own.
