My best friend is 16, sheâ€™s a junior in high school. Her mom is an alchoholic and an all around bad parent. She refuses to get her her license, pay for school etc. Her mom is currently unemployed and they just found out they owe $1900 in rent at their apartments.
She told me that because her dad passed away, she gets around $750 from the government each month but she has no way of accessing it.
Does anyone know what this is called, and how she could access it before turning 18? Or how her mom could somehow get into it? She said her mom couldnâ€™t access it because she has been in jail I believe.
