A form has to be filled out that isn't too detailed, and you have to run a criminal background check on them, but even then I see where they can still be accepted as your attendent, I guess it depends on the criminal background. The thing pertinent to your circumstances, I don't know what the requirements are if the person you want paid to help you lives in your house. If your son is already there.....but I can just see your ex demanding part if not all the pay check, which is direct deposited to either a bank account or debit card that belongs to the attendent(person helping you).
Yea, the ex may demand some if not all of that money. It's another reason my son won't work. He gets no kind of assistance in any way, either. His dad already told him any job he gets, he has to turn all of the paycheck over to him and he feels like why work when his dad will take the money from him. I know it sounds weird and like all my son has to do is say know but living with a manic control freak is a whole different thing and this man will back you into a corner and yell like a bull horn in your face and you WILL do as he says, end of.
I am also having my doubts that a family member may qualify for a paycheck for helping out when he would probably be living here even if I wasn't... I don't know.
My son has no criminal record, at all. The only time he's ever been in a police station was to file a complaint against a customer in Joplin, who tried to run him over on purpose, in the workplace parking lot.
