Ask the hospital to allow you to sign a finiacial hardship letter. But you will have to prove hardship.
Parents are liable for their children until they become legally adult.
The owner of the vehicle is usually held liable.
Who is the owner of the car your adult daughter was driving, you or her? If you, you can both be liable. Her as the driver, and you as the owner of the vehicle
No, if the adult children are not joint debtors they are not responsible for their parents debts. If they are joint debtors the parents' debts could be discharged in BK leaving the adult children who were not a part of the BK procedure open to the recovery of the debt(s) by creditors.
The child is no longer a minor. As an adult, they are responsible for themselves.
No she is an adult at 19.
Not unless the parents entered into a contract with the hospital, doctor, etc. that provided the care.
In almost every US state, the age of majority is 18. This means a person who reaches that age is an adult and is fully responsible for themselves. The parents are no longer liable for any of their actions. The states with an exception are Alabama and Nebraska which are age 19 and Mississippi which is age 21.
Very generally speaking, in the U.S. a person is not liable for any other person's debt, unless that person is a cosigner on a loan or something.
http://ojjdp.ncjrs.org/pubs/reform/ch2_d.htmlNo. If child is emancipated or an adult, then the parents are no longer responsible or liable for the child unless extenuating circumstances apply. ie: mental retardation.
No, at age 19, the "child" is an adult responsible for his own actions. The parent has no legal authority to make the 19 year old do what the parent wishes, therefore the parent cannot be held liable for the child's actions.
The question is much too broad to be answered specifically. However - if you are still legally a minor, possibly, your parents might be be held liable for civil damages, but they would not be held responsible for your criminal activities. If you are considered to be legally an adult in your state, it is only YOU that would be responsible for your actions.
Not unless the parent was a co-signer or guarantor.
You are considered an adult and capable of signing a contract. Such debt will be your responsibility. That may be modified if your parents have health insurance on you.
If you have to ask, then find an adult. If you are an adult, go to the hospital.
adult children's avoid parents because of the mostly parents interface there lives
In the US, parents have no rights over an adult child unless that adult child has been declared mentally incompetent by the court and the parents were appointed guardians as a result of that.
In the majority of US states an 18-year-old is considered an adult, that being the case parents are not financially responsible for their adult child unless there are extentuating circumstances, such as a court order stating differently. In the few states where the age of majority is higher then 18, the existing state laws would determine what if any liability parents might have in such circumstances.
yes, we are financially responsible for our kids until they are 18, in most states, 2 states, I believe it is until they are 19. If they break it we pay for it.Financial responsibility falls on the parents until the kid turns 21 in NY
No, not as long as they didn't co-sign the mortgage. However, if the parents have died and their property is subject to a mortgage the lender will foreclose on the property if the mortgage isn't paid. If the heirs want to keep or sell the property they must keep the mortgage payments current.
It depends on the hospital.
