Number one talk to your brother and see what he says tell him what's going on and tell him you want to live with him if he says no than just try to figure something elea out don't give up.
Number two try to get a job at a movie theater or Ihop I got a job there at 15 and that was only 3 years ago.
Number 3 go to your bank have a friends parent drive you or something and see what they can do about your mom taking your check or call the check company and explain.
Lastly talk to your mom explain your fears tell her you want to save and it hurts you.
Also you can always talk to your school they can help find you a job or even set up a college save fun.

Are you able to call your brother? If so talk it over with him and your mom. I know talking about it with your mom may seem hard and it will be but maybe you guys can work something out.

Have you even talked to your brother? Have you talked to your mother? I understand where you're coming from. Believe it or not we are in basically the same situation, except my dad didn't die. We are the same age (15 in October), we both have an older sibling that recently moved away that we'd like to live with, both of us have a mom who doesn't save.
What you to do is take matters into your own hands. Focus on school, get a sports or an academic scholarship! Get a job and save all your money in order to pay for college. You have to learn to take care of yourself because no one else is going to.

First step is to talk to your brother to make sure that it is ok to leave with him. Then the both of you need to confront your mom. If that doesn't work then your brother could talk to a lawyer about the problems at home. There are lawyers that you can talk to and get free information on what to do. If the checks come in your name maybe have the address changed to your brothers so she cant spend it. Also you could have your brother start a savings account in your name. Good luck and hope I helped.
