My Son needs Child Support

My boy friend was involved in a car accident about 6 years ago and won a big settlement of about 1 million dollars. Unfortunately though he has lost his mental capacity to function and so he had to move in with his mother and left me alone with our 1 year old son. His mother took all the money and my son haven't received even a dime. What can I do so our son can get child support since his grandmother took all the money. I need help please.

If the injury occured over four years ago you would, unfortunately, be unable to file a claim for your son even if your boyfriend had not settled his case. Under Florida law such a claim must be filed within a four year period following the accident. It would seem that your recourse at this point would be to seek social security benefits for your son arising from the injury suffered by his father. If this has not been done check the internet for an attorney in your area that handles social security matters.. Good luck to you and your son.
