I'm 18 years old and my mom is trying to kick me out. Can I put her on child support if she does kick me out?

Q: I'm 18 and my mom wants to kick me out. She says I should be helping for the rent when my mom makes enough to knock out the rent in one weeks pay. She spends all her money on outside food, shopping and to my younger siblings (17 y.o brother and 11 y.o sister) I don't make enough money to give the amount of money she wants for the rent. She doesn't buy me absolutely anything, I've been working since I was 14 because I realized if I depended on her to buy me new shoes or clothes I'll be walking around barefooted. She's been saying she wanted to kick me out since I was 17. I have ran away before because her verbal abuse was too much for me when I was 14 years old. I looked online and it says I can put her on child support till I'm 21, I'm not sure how that works or if I have to be in school or not. I have no where else to go, no family or anything like that.

How does Child support work in the summer?

Q: If the NCP gets 1 month out of the summer does he still have to pay child support and the daycare pro rata costs? Or does it get suspended for that month? If NCP and custodial parent split the summer, does that mean they each get 1 month or does NCP still get visitation during custodial parent summer month and vice versa? NCP has 2 kids already and 2 adults living in a 2 bedroom apt. The child does not have a room or a bed. Does he need to have proper accommodations to get 1 month of summer vacation?

Can I refuse a second paternity test?

Q: I am the mother of a 7 month old baby..: my ex filed a petition for paternity back in December 2017, in March 2018 (our court hearing for the DNA results)
The results showed that he is NOT the father. On April 24th 2018, a letter was mailed to me explaining that the case will be terminated due to finding of fact that he is NOT my child's father. Regardless if he (or even I) wanted to object to terminating the case, we would have to mail a written petition explaining why either side doesn't want to close the case. I don't want anything that has to do with him towards me or my child, and I am of course sure he isn't father with and without a DNA test, I am afraid that he would want to retake the test as a way to still be present and make me go through a hard time. We broke up in 2017, and I became pregnant shortly after, this is where the confusion came in (just some back story), he has NEVER been in my child's life, not even when he wondered if he may have been the father, so there hasn't been a link or presence at all. Can he file for a second paternity test? And if he does, am I allowed to refuse it since I complied with the first court order back a few months ago?
