My son lives with his two elderly grandmothers and his father, and was recently approved for Disability benefits. His father is a habitual drug user and has been for 15 years or more. He has been in trouble with the law including DUI, and was in a wreck where he was high. He also frequently steels money and pawns merchandise that belongs to his mother and great grandmother. He recently (3-4 months ago) pawned my sons brand new laptop that I bought him, and I had to get it out of pawn. These are just a drop in the bucket to the issues we have had.
SSI just made my sons dad his payee. How do I go about fighting this? I would be fine with either of his grandmothers being his payee! But, not his dad. What can I do legally? Can I take the matter to civil court? What documents should I file?
