You can contact the Department of Vital Statistics once you turn 18 and request your birth certificate. From there you can get a Florida ID or take your driver's test and get your driver's license. You will need some form of mail with your name showing where you live. And then you can get a duplicate of your social security card from your local Social Security Department. You school can also give you a copy of your records to prove your residency also when you get your ID. Start with the school and/or Vital Statistics.
I saw the comments that you made to the other attorney in that the birth certificate is in Puerto Rico. I think the social security issue is very interesting as it is "your" number but parents regularly obtain these for their minor children. You are not giving a reason that your Mother will not provide this information. I would hate for you to have to do something drastic, but you may need to file a suit against your mother to turn over the social security card. You may want to call SS and Puerto Rico vital statistics and start inquiring about what they would need to provide you with a SS card and a birth certificate.
