The Daily Record also reported that Rachel Canning had been living with her best friend's family. John Inglesino, the friend's father and a lawyer, is reportedly funding Rachel Canning's lawsuit but is not representing her. Inglesino declined to comment to ABC News.
He has reportedly said he wants her parents to foot the bill for legal fees as well, which now total $13,000.
Sean Canning, a former New Jersey police chief, said the ordeal was tearing his family apart.
"We'd be whole and healed as a family if she were back home," he said. "And I think she's being enabled. I think she's being steered down the wrong area and it's killing us."
Rachel Canning has not responded to ABC News' request for comment.
Today's scheduled court hearing will mark the first time the father and daughter see each other since October 2013.
"I don't know," Sean Canning said. "It's going to be very tough."
