Michael Boulette Discusses Case of Teen Suing her Parents for Tuition with The Fiscal Times


The case of the New Jersey teen who is suing her parents to force them to pay her college tuition has drawn international headlines. The nuances of New Jersey law make the case less cut and dry than it appears. In the article “Parent Trap: Teen Sues Parents for College Tuition,” The Fiscal Times discusses the legalities of the case along with the moral and ethical obligations parents have (or don’t have) when it comes to paying for their children’s college education.

In this case, Canning’s parents have reportedly already established a college fund in her name, so it’s not a question of having adequate funds. “Not only can her parents afford it, but the money is already sitting off to the side,” says Michael Boulette. “The question is whether she can tap into it, when she has essentially told her parents she wants nothing to do with them.”

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
