The existence of a parent or guardian complicates the liability of the infant for necessaries. If credit is extended to the parent, the infant cannot afterwards be held liable.1 If the parent or guardian actually supplies the infant with necessaries, additional goods are not necessaries.2 Where the infant lives with his parents, there is a prima facie presumption that he is supplied with necessaries.3 It seems to be generally held that a minor living with his parents, who is actually in want by reason of their inability to supply his needs, may be held liable for necessaries furnished.4 However, it has been held that where the father was poor and unable to procure medical attendance, the infant was not liable therefore;5 but in the same state, where the infant's father was in a soldiers' home, his mother in a reformatory and he himself in an almshouse, the infant is liable to one who furnishes him with support and education.6 So an infant may be personally liable for attorney's fees in a damage suit for an indecent assault, as it is not the parent's duty in law to pay for such attorney's services.7
