I am from California and I had a question for my story: I had within two years ago, had been in a situation where my foster parents kept AB-12 money (or more or less stay as my foster parents if that makes sense) that my social worker agreed for them to keep as long as it was going towards my expenses when I visit on the weekends. The foster parents (whom I have been with my whole life) decided to not let me over with he exception of Christmas which they had me pay $2,000 to stay with them. By the end of the school year, I told my social worker and she was livid. My foster parents called it "holding a bed" for me and lied saying that they weren't getting that money. We (social worker and I) had talked that maybe I would get that money back but a year later, foster parents went to court over this and got three years probation and still got to keep there license. I was going to call my former lawyer from when I was in foster care to ask potential next steps but does anyone have any advice? It's been a year since they got probation and I am now 22 years old. I am in school about to graduate college next year.
