Hi I am writing on behalf of my 26 year old daughter with two kids ages 2 and 3. She had a legal issue that prevented her from meeting her Ex-husband (she filed for divorce last year) one time for their visitation exchange and now he will not let her take the kids to her new residence because she has a new boyfriend. I have told her that is not legal because they have a custody agreement and to take him back to court. She would prefer to get her own place. Here is the problem she is on public assistance, has no job and is only living with her boyfriend cause she cant afford housing on the little money she receives. The welfare office says they will help her with move in cost, but the rent can't be more than 85% of what her income. We are in California does anyone know of a program that can help her. Yeterday, (Mothers Day) was the first time she was allowed to see them since March 28. She wants to work but child care is expensive, between public assistance and child support she receives less than $700 per month.
