Hello, new expert here.. I see you requested a new expert to assist so I will try to help..

.

Did the judge order that the money needs to go into an account where it can't be withdrawn from?

.

Was there some allegation of misuse of funds?

.

What is the reason for the judge ordering the money to be put in this account?

.

.

thanks

Family Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Ok, so the judge stated that the money has to go into the account..

.

1. Was there some reason why he ordered this and has prevented you from being able to access it?

.

2. Was this a probate court judge?

.

3. Are you the legal guardian of the your granddaughter?

1 the judge ordered the money into a blocked account until she is 18 or a court order.2 the judge gave no reason and there was no alegation of misuse. 3 I'm a Co guardian and the rep payee for her social security benifits.it's my understanding the state has no jurisdiction over ssa benifits.
Family Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Ok, thank you for that information.. While the state doesn't have any power to order SS to do anything, a state judge does have the power over guardianship and conservatorship proceedings and under that power, the judge has the right to control the handling and disposition of the assets of a minor until they become an adult.

.'

So for example, the judge wouldn't have any authority to order SS to increase the amount of money a recipient gets, but the judge would have the authority to limit a conservator's or guardian's control over that money until the minor reached the age of majority.

.

With that said, if you as guardian needed funds to pay for child's care and expenses, then your recourse here is to file a petition with the court to have it grant you some type of access to that money so you can use it for the child's benefit.

.

.'

thanks
