I will try to make this short-My sons bf moved in with us in June because he couldn't get along with his stepfather-to the point that it was going to come to blows! I do care about my son's friend but here is the problem-My family has struggled financially all year especially the past 4 months. After child support, insurance and taxes my husband only brings home 75 dollars a week-we have 3 children 2 mine and 1 his + son's best friend-I make 300 a week. We have the bare minimal in bills no credit cards-nothing but basics and our bills are still 1400 a month-we are not on any financial aid programs so obviously we are always behind on bills-continuedAnswer Question

What's the plan? Is your son's friend planning on living with you until he graduates or turns 18, or is this supposed to be temporary until his step-dad cools off? If it's going to be long term, I would recommend going to the court house and filing for custody and then pursue getting child support for him. Since he has a step dad, I'm assuming that the mom is getting child support from his father, and that needs to be forwarded to you. At the very least you need to tell his mom that you can't afford the extra mouth to feed and that you need her help. She can't know if you don't tell her.
