My son's trust was set up years ago by my husband from money they received in an accident case because my son was young. He is turning 17 and still not able to touch his money till he is 18 unless there is a valid reason to pull the money. My son has recently gotten a part time job and needs a car not only for the job but for an internship that he will be working for school next year. My husband petitioned the court for the money with a letter for the reason why he needed the money, not only for the car but for his car insurance which is very pricey being a teen boy. Finances have been strenuous for us mostly because of the hefty medication co-pays and doctor co-pays we are strapped and will find it very hard to help him with these fees until he is 18. We have two children with cystic fibrosis and find it difficult enough to keep up with the bills. We had to pay a hefty fee for just the petition and then received a letter over a month later that they are denying it because it was shown that he needs it for medical reasons or education. This is my son's money and he should use it for what he needs it for. It is not like we are going to pay our bills with it. He really needs a car and pay for his insurance. If not he will not be able to work or do his internship for his senior year in high school which is required. The letter does not state anything except that it was denied. I saw on your site about the code used and it also said that we could go to hearing, well that's more money I am sure and we don't have it to pay for a lawyer etc. Why is this so difficult? The money is for my son and is a necessity at this point. What do I do now?
