If she does so much at your place ( eating, showering, etc. ) what on earth does she do at her own place ? Surely she doesn't even need a key to your place ? Tell her to return what she stole ( taking without asking IS stealing ) and to stop coming round to your place to plunder it, and that she may only visit when you are there. And cancel that cellphone contract --- from the sound of it she doesn't need one --- who does she need to call ? And her bf doesn't need a phone you paid for, at all. Stop lending her money. and contact Toughlove to get support for pushing this greedy, ungrateful, dishonest slob into growing up and taking responsibility for caring for herself. YOu are and have been far too lenient, and need to become more strict and sensible, for her own good as well as yours and that of the child. I don't believe that your divorce from her father caused her any harm at all --- your guilt over the divorce, leading to spoiling her and being far too lenient, that was what did the damage. Banning a repeat thief from your rooms isn't being too harsh. Calling the police and laying charges wouldn't be too harsh, even if it might not be the best idea at this specific point.
And why isnt the child's father paying maintenance ? The Maintenance court can compel him to pay what he owes.
