CA Receiving AAP Benefits And Can't Move Out?

CALIFORNIA: I am an 18-year old adopted child and I am receiving AAP benefits. Or, mom is. I have ADHD, bipolar disorder, and PTSD. My mom applied to continue my benefits for me until age 21 and it was approved, but I never saw the paperwork. I want to move out, my family makes my depression worse and I constantly feel emotionally neglected and manipulated, but my mom is saying that I am not allowed to move out until I'm 21, because she has legal control over me. Now, that doesn't make sense to me because I am signing my own legal and medical documents, but maybe I missed something? Can anyone tell me what's going on and what my legal rights are? I need to get out of here.

Chances are she is your legal guardian. Ask. Note if you are good enough to handle all your own decisions, you are unlikely to be qualified as disabled.

You need to find out if she obtained court-ordered guardianship over you. The AAP does not have that effect. If she has no legal guardianship than you are free to pick up and move wherever you like.

Once you are settled I'd let her county know you moved out. That way they can end the AAP to her.
