I don't understand what is meant by housing and utilities. Does it mean the child pays a percentage of the rent or what?
So, the more income the parents had, the less the child had to pay on expenses, right?
But the parents income has no effect on the amount of the child's check, does it?
One more thing. My child's benefits went onto a debit card every month, and I had other debit cards from my checking account and my husband's checking account. I kept track of what I spent her money on, but I used all 3 debit cards for various purchases, using mine and my husband's for her expenses, and hers for whatever. I guess I shouldn't have done that. Can I get in trouble about it?
