ROSELAND, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey honor student who sued to get her parents to support her after she moved out of their home has reunited with her parents.

The Star-Ledger of Newark reports that the lawyer representing Rachel Canning’s parents said in a statement Wednesday that the 18-year-old’s return is not contingent on any financial or other considerations.

A judge last week denied the teen’s request for child support and to have her parents pay her remaining high school tuition. But the judge scheduled an April court date to consider the over-arching question of whether the Cannings are obligated to financially support their adult daughter.

Attorney Angelo Sarno says a news conference will be held outside the firm’s office in Roseland at 1:30 p.m. EDT.
