Actually, this is a young man here not a child under 18. He can go if he wishes and does not need your permission to leave home unless you have some sort of guardianship of him for other reasons. Let him go live with dad. He might think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence and he might find out differently. He should be going to college, job training, or working and helping to pay for rent or house payment, utilities, food, and other essential things for the household. He should not be getting you to give him money and other things. Do not enable him no more. When he finds out the world does not hand things to him, he will either find someone else to live off of or learn he needs a job fast.
