    I just received a letter regarding my

    daughter's emancipation due to her graduating high school. My case had been ceased years ago because of the defendant's "inability" to pay. The arrears up to that point in time are still intact, as far as I know. Can he still be held liable to pay even after she turns 18? I've...

    I used to pay her more

    than the required amount when I was obligated to, and now she owes me child support but she flat out refuses to pay it. She also won't disclose her income for the purpose of calculating it.

    A Vindictive Miser

    I left my control-freak husband when I lost all trust in him. By that time he knew that the only way he could hurt me was by using our daughter as his 'weapon'. There then followed a nightmare 4-year long fight to get a divorce. He says he loves our daughter more than anything...
