An 18-year-old woman, currently undergoing immunotherapy, was supposed to receive 125k from her grandfather’s inheritance to pay for her college fees. But her mother, who had taken upwards of 250k from her daughter in the past, wanted the money all to herself as payback for her child’s medical bills when she was four.
Their Relationship Had Always Been Difficult
The woman said, ‘I (18AFAB) have a… complicated relationship with my parents. As I’ve gotten older, it’s gotten worse. Recently I received a sum of money from my deceased grandpa (about 125k, all for college). When I was told I had inherited it, I was excited that I would be able to afford my dream school. When I tried to get the money transferred to my college savings, I encountered a problem. My mother.’
She Had A Responsibility As The Oldest Child
The mother felt that because she was the oldest child, she had a responsibility to pay her back for any expense her childhood had cost the parents. This included medical bills from when the daughter was four years old.
The Mother Refused To Give Up The Money
When the daughter asked to transfer the inheritance money into her college savings account, the mother said no, informing her daughter that it was rightfully hers.
She Stole From Her Child
After hearing this, the daughter was mad. She felt that her mother had been doing this to her all her life. Throughout her childhood, her mother would go into her room and steal cash, money she’d won from sporting events, and once destroyed a safe the grandfather had bought her.
The Daughter Had A Plan
The daughter wasted a few days and used the time to work out a plan. She referred to the notebook she had kept since she was 13. In it, she had documented all the money she had ever earned.
Her Mother Owed Her 250K
Her mother had never taken money from her siblings, so the daughter felt unfairly treated. The daughter added everything up in the notebook, including 125K from her grandfather, and the result was a massive 250 K.
It Was Time To Pay Up
Since the age of 13, everything the daughter had earned she wrote down as college savings. She presented her notebook to her mother with all the transactions she’d ever made. To begin with, her mother was confused, but when the daughter showed her the grand total, things got ugly.
The Fight Began
The daughter said, ‘She started yelling that all of that was hers since she had spent more than that on my medical bills. I tried to stay calm, but I’ve had enough of her dumb excuses. So, I told her that she doesn’t do any of this to my siblings, and she only said that it was my job as the oldest to pay her. ‘
The Mother Destroys the Evidence
In her rage, the mother destroyed the notebook and papers. Fortunately, the daughter was prepared. She’d copied everything into a file on her laptop. Two days later, the daughter sent an email explaining everything her mother had ever stolen from her.
She Faced Legal Action
The daughter hadn’t included interest. She told her mother that if she didn’t pay her, she would have to take legal action, suing her for more than she had stolen, including years of therapy.
She Lawyered Up
The daughter had to get a lawyer and file a police report. Her father was on her side and ended a business trip early to come home and help her. The daughter had to move in with her friend until she could attend college. She changed her bank account so her mother had no access and contacted a group that could help her with her grandfather’s will. It was revealed that her mother had actually bribed the group’s employees, and therefore, they would also be prosecuted. After so much conflict, the daughter wondered whether she did the right thing, so she took the Internet for advice…
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘Honey, I am a parent of a child that requires multiple medical specialists, specialized therapy, assistance tools, etc..…so I feel qualified enough to tell you this: It is THE PARENT’S JOB TO PROVIDE CARE FOR THE CHILD. You do not owe your mother for the care she gave you as a child. You do not owe your younger siblings money or childcare. You do not owe your mother elder care.”
The Woman Gave An Update
After a short while, the woman updated her commenters. She said, ‘Now, several things have come up. For starters, out of the six kids, I am the only one who is related to my father by blood. All of my siblings are half-siblings, but I don’t consider them any less family. During an argument, my mother revealed that the other five were the results of a 16-year-long affair. All of them have the same father, but not mine.
So now, she is dealing with a lawsuit, potential criminal charges, and a divorce. My father has kicked her from the house and is working to get her name off the house, my car, and everything else that he can.
He is trying to fight for full custody of my siblings, which, at this point, I think he can easily win.’
