Sorry i have not rated you yet. This process is delicate and i want to present your information and professional opinion first which will happen in a few days. I have signed up for a 7 free day trial and wanted to be able to ask you more questions if something else was to come up.
I have a stepmother who is basically telling my son he can live where he wants (which is with her) so she can continue collecting my child support and collect his SS death benefits. My question is how can I legally establish his residency with me. What i have done already is put him on my lease, his insurance is through me & i planned on going to his school and redoing his paperwork because his father filled all that out and now that he is deceased i feel like it should be updated. Any other advice?
i did and the SS lady contacted me back and told me that she spoke with "said" stepmom/wife of my Ex and told her my son would be living with her. That's why i was asking if there are any means of documentation i can send to the SS office? I will be sending copy of lease with his name added.
