The New Jersey teen who sued her parents, Rachel Canning, is now back at home with her parents. The parents' attorney, Angela Sarno, made the announcement today. According to a March 12 report by NBC News, Rachel Canning's homecoming was not “contingent” on financial considerations.

Rachel Canning lost her lawsuit against her parents earlier this month. The judge denied her request for financial support from her family. Instead, the judge suggested “family counseling.”

The teen had wanted money from her parents to support herself as well as for Sean and Elizabeth Canning to pay for college tuition. Rachel Canning also wanted her parents to pay for her legal fees.

Those legal fees had been paid by a local politician. Rachel Canning had moved in with the politician's family. Canning claimed that her parents had kicked her out of the house. Her parents stated they hadn't kicked her out of their home, but had insisted she follow their rules while living at home.

At the time of publication, it was unknown if Rachel Canning and her parents were getting the family counseling the judge had recommended. It is also unknown if the teen will follow her parents rule while living at home.
