I live in the Western US but have been battling a case of post age-of-majority child/college support for years. I am being forced to pay for college for a 23 year old daughter who sued me in NJ Family Court to pay for her medical school.
Yeah, I know NJ has no emancipation laws. But to me, this action by the NJ Judiciary is illegal, unconstitutional legislating from the bench. The NJ State Legislature has been avoiding its responsibility to create an emancipation law to prevent the Judiciary from usurping their authority.
I wrote every NJ State Legislator, Governor, Supreme Court Justice and have one Senator who I may be able to get to sponsor the a new law.
I need help and/ or guidance. I created a website to start soliciting help from NJ citizens to pass a law in NJ on emancipation. "emancipatenj.com" It is too late for me, but maybe I can help the next poor sucker.
1. Am I NUTS to even contemplate trying to get NJ to pass a law?
2. Any suggestions on how to engage these NJ Legislators to owe up to their responsibilities and take control back from NJ Family Courts?
3. Any suggestions on how to get all of these NJ Dads engaged to help with their legislators? (most of those affected are dads)
