Hi. I need to ask a question that can help me with certain rights. I know a friend of mine who has autism and told from the psychiatrist he is incompetent. His mother became the guardian of his son. There is one problem, her son does have some skills and some independence. He is incredibly intelligent, he knows how to take a shower, put his clothes on his own and a few other things. By saying that, does it sound to you he is completely incompetent? I say no. Don't get me wrong, he does have pros and cons of autism but he is not severely incompetent. Because of that, does he have any rights at all to claim the independence of his rights? He receives Social Security call, SSI but his mom is controlling the money. Her son is only 20 years old, going to be 21 around April 2nd. At some point does he have the right to buy whatever he wants if he does not want to eat the food in the house at all but he wants to get something different from ordering online? Because he was worried his mom is going to say no or getting to trouble. He asks someone else he trusts ordered something to eat online for him. Don't get me wrong, he always pays back what he owed. In the end, his mom found out about it and told him and the person who helped him, don't ever that again. To me, that's rude and disrespectful. Especially he can do some things and some independence. Please help. He lives in Illinois.
