Skip to comments.Judge rejects financial support requests by New Jersey teen suing parents
Posted on 03/05/2014 7:26:24 AM PST by servo1969
Rachel Canning, 18, of Morris Catholic High School, was denied her requests for child support of $654 a week as well as thousands of dollars in attorney fees and immediate reimbursement of her high school tuition.
Morris County Court Judge Peter Bogaard also ruled that Rachels parents must keep her on their health insurance policy and keep status quo on all college savings accounts set up for her.
This whole thing is just destroying our family, Sean Canning told The Post. We love our daughter. Shes our pride and joy. The door is wide open. We want her to come home.
Canning told the newspaper he and his wife have disagreed on typical family issues.
Im a liberal, liberal parent, he said. I wish I could have grown up in my house. I was tougher on my cops at work than Ive ever been at my home, thats for sure.

Good. The young woman was crazy to think she deserved the money and/or would get it.
Tslk about paving the path to Hell for your family.
The daughter sounds like a little witch in training doesn’t she?
And the dad says how he’s a liberal parent. Perhaps his liberalism bred a strong sense of entitlement in his little witch in training?
I have sympathy for any boyfriend/husband in this girl’s future.
This girl couldn’t be doing this without the aid of greedy lawyers and a state mindset that see parents as wallets to be tapped.
My wife read me the judges decision. Looks like she didn’t realize she is not in opposite world when entering that courtroom.
The good news for her is that she IS in opposite world along with the rest of us when she leaves the courtroom.
i.e. the judges comments were the most sane thing I’ve heard in a news report in DECADES.
Let’s see if this thread lasts longer than the Daily Mail article on the same subject that was pulled earlier.
I predict a future in cam porning for her.
And I regret that the judge failed to slap her idiot-lawyer (sorry for redundancy) around for even daring to bring such a stupid case to court.
Given the current realityTV/Facebook obsessed culture. I’ll not be surprised if she did it just to gain publicity and a juicy TV/media offer.
There you go. As ye sow , so shall ye reap.
Im a liberal, liberal parent, he said.”
That’s your problem, buddy.
what does "keep status quo" on the college savings accounts mean? Do they have to continue to pay into them, thus forcing them to pay for her college?
The lawyer was being paid hourly by the father of the girl she is living with. This isn't a "contingency fee" case.
I’m amazed that there is a hearing later... to decide whether the parents HAVE to pay for college!
Here in Texas, 18 yo is adult! In NY (probably NJ too) child support goes to 21 yo. Thankfully, my hubby’s last child finished a 2 yr college program and moved out of momma’s house over 18 months before her 21st b’day!
I'll bet it does. And so this judge requires a pair of adults to legally pay the expenses of another adult (this "teen" "cheerleader" is 18, an adult). Divorce laws and alimony aren't just for ex-husbands anymore!
Yes, her side was basically accusing the parents of being cheap, but they were projecting.
To a liar, everyone is a liar. To a greedy person, everyone is acting out of greed. These people didn’t have a clue, but in their arrogantly ignorant narcissism had the gall to sick the gun toting state on the parents.
Seen her photo. She looks like a spoiled little brat who is really in need of a good spanking (non-sexual).
So the parents of the demon seed are liberals? Why are we not surprised?
Her child support demands alone added up to $33,540 a year. If that doesn’t confirm that she is a spoiled brat, I am not sure what will.
The parents are saying they want her to come home. I wouldn’t. I love my children so much it hurts. But what Rachel Canning has done is so destructive, if I were her parents, I could never see her without remembering how she tried to utterly use and destroy them, all for her own selfish gain. She is spoiled, but it is beyond that. I think she is evil. I wouldn’t trust her ever again, and I wouldn’t want her around my other children.
It never fails! You WILL reap what you sow.
I have to ask... is he banging her?
Good looking YOUNG girl, although a brat, being supported by a man, lawyer, living in his home - what is in it for him?
Something is really, really fishy and really, really smells.
Why have we not heard a word from the lawyers wife about arrangement- just asking.
Part of her suit was to have the contents of those accounts turned over to her.
He's not only supporting this girl he supposedly fronted 12 grand in legal fees to fund this case.
Too bad she is already 18. The parents could have sued him for interference with custody.
That still doesn't answer the question. The Judge could have just said "no" to that but she maintained the status quo. Someone else said an additional hearing has been scheduled to determine whether the parents will be required to pay her college tuition. And if so how much - a state college tuition or an Ivy League private college tuition.
Any young fellow who courts/dates/whatever this female will RUN (not walk) in some other direction shortly after getting to know her.
If he's smart.
She's pretty ... but NOBODY's pretty enough to justify putting up with her kind of crap.
Well, there's your problem right there. If you'd been a FATHER, then maybe your precious little "pride and joy" would have remained under your authority and protection.
Well, she’d be good for a young male looking for easy sex without commitment, but as a wife - no.
And most young MEN can see that.
(Fathers/mothers - train your boys to recognize a good woman from trouble.)
It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.
Make sure your sons understand it fully.
Actually it does answer the question. The parents retain control of the accounts. The future hearing will determine how they are dispensed.
It’s been reported that she has a $20,000 scholarship to the University of Vermont.
The scholarship application may have listed that account and thus contingent upon it.
Given that the parents weren’t ordered to pay her HS tuition why is there any question of them paying for college? One explanation would be if some of the money did not come from her parents.
After reading this article I’m really up in the air now, I don’t know whether to move to Israel or Texas.
Are the parents required to continue contributing to the accounts as per the status quo?
re: Are the parents required to continue contributing to the accounts as per the status quo?
That’s what it sounds like to me.
I might suspect that would be “for any girlfriend/wife” in this kid’s future.
“Im a liberal, liberal parent, he said. I wish I could have grown up in my house. I was tougher on my cops at work than Ive ever been at my home, thats for sure.”
Ahh, so a Little Princess who isn’t used to being under the same rules t rest of us Mere Mundanes had in our childhood homes.
Reading awhile back about the Duke student who was acting in porn to pay her bills, I saw a lot of my prophecies coming true. And believe me, I'm not Madame Olga with a crystal ball, but the future is plain as day.
There will be a lot of spoiled, cynical, amoral women like this brat who will do anything to maintain their lifestyles. Be it acting in porn, be it turning tricks, or finding a sugar daddy. Russian women were notorious for this behavior. The upcoming generation of American girls have no shame.
I’m going with the dictionary definition of “status quo” here.
