no, they are responsible for themselves at age 18 Depends on what state your in. Some is 18 for both boy and girl. Others its 18 or 21 for one or the other. You would have to check with the Dept. of Family Services, as far as financially. If they live under your roof and they do something illegal, you know how people are, they will come after you if their lawyer is hungry enough. If they drive your car, definately.
