Thread: hurt and more than a little confused part 2

    hurt and more than a little confused part 2

    Honestly. You couldn't make this **** up. My daughter just turned 16 and is classed as an adult in the eyes of SS. But as she is disabled we need to APPLY to be made her guardians. This involves an interview by a lawyer for myself and my wife. Oh yeah I forgot. This costs between 2k and 3.5k and we don't qualify for legal aid coz. Yes you guessed it. We work.

    another case of the hard working tax payer gets penalised.... if you were claiming jobseekers (ha ha I love that term) allowance, things would be different.

    Speachless !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A pal of mine has been divorced for 10 years, his ex wife now has terminal cancer. It has brought the family together again, his daughters have decided to take time out from Uni to care for their mother [not exactly a gap year!] and have been told that they don't qualify for a carers allowance !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wonder about the future of this country?

    let me get this straight, you have to pay up to 3.5 grand to ask if you can look after your own daughter?? that is one fucú3d up system...

    all the very best of luck dealing with this..

    theres nothing to challenge mate, if we wish to become her legal guardians then this is what it costs to put together a case to put before a judge, , if we dont do this then SS will be responsible for her wellbeing and housing , i wouldnt let them look after a budgie

    I have read about your problem before,my heart bleeds for you and your family,I live in the South East we see a lot of problems that we all have to foot the bill for, go to france for the day lose all your documents and come back to uk,and the problem is solved you will get all your needs looked after,helps if you dont understand anything,you will be given a case worker, enough said.
