Ugh definitely gonna have to go to court
In the latest "BM wants all the money" update:
P ebt cards were sent out a couple months ago. SDs came to our house because it is listed as her primary address. Its given to kids who receive free or reduced lunch and SD and ODS qualified for it this year through our household. The money on it is reimbursement for the beginning of the school year- when SD was here at least half time. So we thought nothing of using it to buy groceries - I mean we paid for SD to eat when she was here and last years was actually under my name because I submit the application for free and reduced lunch for our house. It's only like $70 a month for a few months anyway.
Well, BM called and had the card marked as being lost or stolen and a new one sent to her house. Which makes no sense because everything has SDs primary address listed as ours BY BMs OWN CHOICE and BM doesn't even live in the state the cards are from. When I asked BM about it she lost her mind and said we should never have touched that money because it was for SD (and again, she ate at least half her meals at our house at that time) and when I told her I would call the state back to get it cleared up she kept telling me I dont have to because it's already taken care of by her and they're sending her a new card. So who knows what she told them.
So yeah, clearly there's going to have to be some sort of court order so this crap doesn't keep happening.
