Re: Bank of Snafu
So advise him that 1 and 2 are his options?

Re: Bank of Snafu
No, what I mean is that the "adult" thing to do would be to tell his dad himself that he wants the check and those two savings accounts (plus bank statements) turned over to him before going to a lawyer. Has he done that?

As far as option 2, he could just contact his GM and tell her that if the check hasn't cleared to put a stop payment on it and send all future checks directly to him. Just IMHO, a declaration of "I'm an adult now!" by an 18yo is less effective and less well-received than adult behavior.

Re: Bank of Snafu
no - I don't know that he understands that's an option .... or maybe he does and has kissed the $$ goodbye/hopes he'll get part of it in the future

Then I'd tell him that before I'd tell him he could go to a lawyer. :) JMHO

I didn't realize there were minor savings accounts involved. Did X deposit the check in one of those? That would change the situation. If that's what X did, then I would let it be. I wouldn't bring a lawyer into this. It's up to DS to work it out with his father.

P.S. If this is a true custodial account, DS may already have access to the accounts. ;)

sorry I'm late getting back...

cliff note version: spoke with DS, money is in a savings account is DS's name

Re: Bank of Snafu
Does DS have signature authority on that saving account? Knowing your ex, I hope DS does and XH doesn't. :(

Re: Bank of Snafu
Long overdue update
DS closed the account and transferred his 💰 to his account with a national bank
