I don't think you could do this, in most cases. The age of majority is 18. That's when you're considered a legal adult and you can make all your own decisions. In some cases a minor can be legally emancipated. You would want to contact a family lawyer in California to ask about this. Otherwise you...

If she no longer a dependent of yours she should no longer beentitled to the payments. They should have been paid to you anywayfor her behalf if I'm not mistaken.

You should set a minimum age. Most parents set a minimum of ten(10) years of age. Kentucky doesn't have any laws about childrenstaying anywhere alone. To be honest, I'd aim for roughly fourteen(14).

I am not sure about the laws in New Jersey. However, in almost every state, minors (under the age of 18) are not legally allowed to purchase any sort of medication. Even if it's as harmless as benadryl. Chances are, the law in New Jersey is probably the same as everywhere else. Hope this helped.

It depends if the 17 year old is emancipated and living on their own. They have proven themselves to be an adult and responsible for their own actions. If he is still at home with his parents you should take it to court.
Yes, you can. If you want to stay, then you have to behave as a member of the family--contributing to the welfare of the family by doing chores, paying your way, and so on. If you have burned your bridges, then you will need to get a job and find somewhere to live--quite possibly not at the same...
