Are you talking about financial help for School? That only depends on your finances. Our oldest lived at home and went to college full time.We were not responsible because of the number of children we have, and the amount of money we make. She is responsible for her loan for college. We are not. While husbands brother is responsible for paying his daughters loan until she graduates because she is the youngest and the only one at home and he makes much more then we do.

I believe that legally after 18 they are no longer your legal responsibility but if they are in college they are your financial responsibility as far as college expenses go until they are 24. My younger 2 moved out at 18 and 19 and my younger 2 are graduating in May and 1 is 19 and off to the Army and the other is 18 and off to college. All are considered legal adults. If they committed a crime then THEY would be responsible for that, I would not be responsible for them or their actions.
