Adoption assistance payments - success extending past 18?
We adopted our daughter through the foster care system from Sacramento County. We're receiving adoption assistance payments for her along with Medical from Sacramento County through 18 years old. The money is going to her education and the Medical is extremely helpful as she has a number of health issues, including but not limited to mental. When we received the offer for adoption assistance I didn't realize that it was possible to have it in place through 21; our daughter's only goes to 18. Since she will likely not graduate from high school until 20, may never live on her own and will continue to need medical treatments into the future, I'd like to try to get that extended. Has anyone done this and, if so, any advice?
