My question involves guardianship in the State of: Mississippi
My sister is 16 years old. She still receives Social Security benefits from our deceased father. She wants to live with me and go to school in my hometown. My mother and I have reached a tentative agreement in which I would become guardian of my sister in order to meet the requirements set forth by the school district. My primary concern isn't the money, its my sister. However, my mother is concerned that if she signs over guardianship to myself, the money stops coming. What usually occurs in a situation like this one? Would the money necessarily stop?
