He is not legally obliged to pay for your college- even if you stay at home; that is just something nice parents tend to do if they can afford it. Look into getting a job and/or scholarship to pay for college, or maybe take a year out, work really hard and save, then go to college.

Sure she may not be perfect, who is? But she did not abort you like so many so-called mothers today. Pregnancy, birth, and raising a daughter over 18 years is a huge slice out of her life. So why don't you get one too?
Some mothers are nasty. The notion that all mothers deserve to be exalted in some way is silly. There are mothers who keep a roof of their kids' head and are still abusive, neglectful in other ways, etc. Parents who are overcontrolling are a problem, and any adult child who chooses to cut those bonds will be healthier and happier in the long run once they set boundaries with their parents.

Of course that could happen. Legal adulthood is reached at age 18.

It goes both ways you know. The 18 year old can move out, make all his own decisions. The parents can do the same, the parents are also no longer obligated. As an adult, you can find your own job, earn your own money -- you should plan on doing that as soon as you want to sever the bond with the parent.

You need to explain the situation. How is she keeping you there?
What do you mean that she's getting the state involved?
