On Social security and If a 15yr old is accused of selling narcotics, assault is sent to a detention center will the parent still get benefits for that child for that month? or does the court stop payment until the trial is over?
When they say "12 months or more in jail etc benefits will stop" are they going by the court decision once its made(you will serve X amount of time), or once you do the actual time?
You should consult with an attorney whose practice focuses on social security / disability benefits to learn about your rights and obligations with respect to the receipt of social security benefits. Use the Avvo find a lawyer tab on top to look for one in your area.
Any answer provided by me does not create an attorney client relationship with the author of the question. An attorney client relationship can be formed with me only after a consultation and subsequent execution of a retainer agreement or letter of engagement. Notwithstanding that, the prospective client is afforded the protections of the attorney-client privilege before and during the consultation regardless of whether the retainer agreement or letter of engagement is subsequently signed.
Well, this depends on what is happening in the criminal case. The benefits should not stop until the person is actually convicted of a criminal offense and will spend more than 30 days in jail.
In this case, if the juvenile is awaiting trial he/she has not been convicted of a criminal offense, and therefore, the benefits should continue.
We would need more details to give a definitely answer.
Hope this helps.
