In a situation where a teenager has moved in with their best friend, can the parent in that household ask for child support?

If they haven’t gotten a court order, they could petition for legal custody and legally obtain child support, but unless they have that legal custody right, they are not going to receive child support. However, just as they are hanging out with a best friend by agreement, oftentimes the parent will voluntarily supply some cash to that family to help support their child.
