I hate when my friends can’t figure out their own problems.
IF the Power of Attorney is Court ordered only another Court Order can change it. Whether or not your friend can just move out depends on WHERE and the type and extent of the disability.
I’m confused - she collects SSD AND works? The mother (if she has the Power of Attorney) is LEGALLY ALLOWED to use that money to pay your friend’s housing, food, clothing expenses. It’s not misuse of the money if the mother uses it for rent, for utilities, for food.
Your friend doesn’t know “who that company is? What company? SSD is Social Security Disability and SS is a Federal Agency, not a private company. Or are you saying that your friend is somehow supervised by a Social Worker or similar person? And that would have - in general - nothing to do with SSD.
Your friend’s only option - if she’s been designated as a person who cannot handle her own legal affairs - is to have her boyfriend petition the Court to become her designed legal guardian. Will the Court allow it? I don’t know. It would be highly unusual for your friend to have this level of disability but live with a boyfriend who has no disabilities.
Your friend should speak with an Attorney. In MY State Legal Aid would represent her free of charge.
