Allie Mendoza gets emancipated.
A few months ago, Allie Mendoza filed for child support fro Joey & visitation for him.
Today was their day in court, and knowing far in advance, his mother and father refused to buy him a ticket to New Jersey for their hearing. Because he didn’t show up, Allie was awarded full custody and they also ruled that Joey’s parents will have to pay child support to Allie on his behalf until he turns 18 in April, then it will become his responsibility. Unfortunately Joey told Allie today, that he will not be paying “shit” for “him”. if he doesn’t pay it looks like he’ll be joining the list of baby daddy’s from Season 3 that have gone to jail.
Due to the fact that Allie has essentially been on her own for some time now, and she feels like she’s the most responsible adult in her life, she filed for emancipation and it was happily granted by the courts.
