My question involves juvenile law in the State of: California.
My mother kicked me out of my home about one month ago. I am currently staying with my friend. We are not romantically involved, I have a boyfriend who is a full-time student and attending the same school I do. I do not have a regular job, but I have an odd job as a model. I attend school every single day, my attendance record is perfect. I get good grades and my testing scores are advanced. My friend's parents, however, are tight on money and I would love to not only help them, but also help myself towards becoming independent. They ask that I pay $200/mo. for rent. I can't afford that every month. So, we came up with the idea that I get food stamps and pay for groceries every month (or when needed). I would also need my own insurance in case anything happens to me. My mother does not know where I am staying and hasn't bothered to even try and get ahold of me in any way. My father knows where I'm staying, he is okay with it, however, my mother has full custody of me. Is it possible to get welfare, food stamps, and medicaid benefits? If so, how? And if I got welfare, would I have to pay it back or would they charge my mother? I know I am not eligable for emancipation, which is why I am trying to take this route, otherwise, I would be asking about the emancipation procedure.
Oh and on another note, my mother kicked me out because I wrote this about her on Facebook:
Could you have sex a little louder please? I don't think the neighbors heard you...
Oh, wait... Yes they did."
Please provide me with information if you can.
