i have no clue what to do! i really messed up this time! i need advice quick! ONLY SERIOUS ONES PLEASE , THIS IS VERY HARD

my apartment rent goes by ur income and i have none (i kno im horrible - although i have been looking for a job for 2 years) so i had to fill out a paper so my manager of the apt can determine my rent. well i didnt want to lie so i put that my daughters father helps me. (and he does he pays the bills,buys things i need and her too). so now he calculated my rent as $100 a month. and i called my bf and theres no way he can pay 100$ out of 1 paycheck,he would have to pay every 2 weeks but the manager said no! b4 u ask we dont want to move intogether until we get a house. ive lived here since 05 , i did have jobs , but my knee has gotten worse and i can barely walk. so now i owe 200$ for 2 months someone told me the same office where wic is would help pay the back rent if i qualify ... but what am i supposed to do about all the other months? i came up w/ letting my bf put all this stuff in storage and ill sign my rights over CONT

  • Could you both go sell some of your plasma to raise cash quick?

  • I think the only real option you have here is to move in together. I know its not what you wanted but its better than being evicted.

  • Lets see...about the $100 a month, why does it all have to come out of one paycheck?? If he can afford to do it every 2 weeks, then take the money out of the paycheck and put it someplace where you WILL NOT spend it, and just do it that way? Like for example if he gets paid every other week, take out $50 and save it. Or if he gets paid every week, take $25 out of each paycheck and save it. As far as the back rent I dunno. I do know that when you donate plasma 2 times a week you can make $100 (in my state) so when times were hard this Christmas, that is what hubby and I did. We make about $750 in one month. (we missed like one appointment) it helped so much.

  • Mikayla_lynn -- right now hes still living at home , bc he works all day , comes here at night to be w/ his daughter , than goes back there to get sum sleep b4 work. we looked into 3 houses lately and theyre WAY out of the price range it would take a few months to save up. he never moved out of his dads bc he was never home , he would visit his mom in md , sister in tx or stay at friends alot (and he visited diff states bc his mom sent for him , no he doesnt have the $ to do it now)

  • First of all I would not sign my rights over to anyone. You need to just calm down and think first. You will definately get more help by being a single mother with a child and you may have a hard time getting your child back from the father even after you get back on your feet. I am not telling you to struggle with your child but can you ask your mother , sister or anyone else to help you with her while you are in transition? Call your local food stamp office or emergency services dept and tell them your situation because they may have resources to help you find help.

  • When I have trouble paying my bills, I take them to my church & ask for some assistance. I give when I can. Donate food, old clothes/barely used shoes. Whatever so that they know that I do give back when I'm able to. That may be an option... I even had to do that a couple times b4 I started attending regularly. They pd all my elec bill & some of my rent to catch me up. Times are hard... I wish u luck!
