    I live with my parents but they are divorcing, so my mom is going to find her own rent and she will not help me with anything financially. I am currently on my first year of college, and I plan to transfer to a University in 2-3 years, but right now I need to move out asap. I live in South Florida, where the rent is minimum $1,000 everywhere. I have 300 dollars in my bank and plenty of bills. I have a not-so-stable babysitting job but I'm not sure if the parents will be calling me back. (and it only pays me 50 bucks a week) Getting a real job will be hard and might take me some time unless I settle for slavery-type jobs (lol) like restaurants or fast-food joints, but I need a place to live asap and I need a good-paying job to keep up with my bills+debts. I currently pay for: internet ($40), my insurance ($35), car loan ($229.69), phone ($50), credit card ($57) paypal credit loans ($35) and that does not include another loan that will be coming up soon (35) plus my car insurance which I need to apply for. (I'm young so it might be pricey) Also, I'll likely be responsible for many other new responsibilities (rent, water, food, etc.). I drive my own car. Do you guys know of any ideas or suggestions to help me in my situation? I just need some ideas.. I'm not sure of what I can do to afford school+bills+loans+rent+life with minimum wage jobs.. I'd love to move upstate or to another country if it makes things easier but I'm not sure if switching colleges will be so simple..

    Ok so im living in a two bedroom apartment with a roommate im splitting rent with. my roommate said he would be fine with my girlfriend moving in as well. Problem is that Her legal guardian wants to have her put on a lease.

  • Does my credit score keep dropping if I don't have an installment loan?

    So I just finished paying off my student loans last month and I was excited to see (what I had hoped) a bump up in my Fico score. I was unpleasantly surprised when the score actually dipped like 25 points. After doing some research apparently the credit score will go down when you finish a loan and have no other ones. That is precisely my case. I have no car, student, or mortgage loans. I have zero debt for now. My question is will the lack of an installment loan keep lowering my score every month or was that a one time hit?

  • Will my rent be prorated?

    Do you think if I move out like June 5-7 they can prorate my rent or will have to pay full amount? I have a year lease.

  • Can I pay in cash at doctors or can they mail me the bill?

    I don't have a credit card only a check card for use at ATMs and stores. Will this work at a doctors office? Would they allow me to pay cash in hundreds there?

    I don't have a credit card only a check card for use at ATMs and stores. Will this work at a doctors office? Would they allow me to pay cash in hundreds there? Another option is paying later and having them bill my dad the amount because he is unable to go with me to the appointment this time. I don't know how it works. Do I have to pay right away or is it an option to for later? I desperately need to get to a doc but don't have a card so it's difficult.

    So, I m moving the 31st of this month. I rent a one bedroom apartment and it s roughly $580 a month, ridiculous already. I called my landlord the beginning of February and went in February 13th to let them know I will be leaving May 31st. The lady had an attitude on the phone and said that my lease wasn t up until June 1st (trying to get me to pay $580 for another month) so I went in the 13th and asked if I needed to sign anything to let them know and the man in the office said no. So it s finally the week of my move out and the landlord attaches a piece of paper to my door saying rent went up to $630 (just for me) and that my lease wasn t up until June 30th. She and I both signed my lease for May 31st. So I went back to the office and corrected her and she is now saying that they do require written notice of move out 30 days before and that I will have a penalty because I didn t sign anything EVEN though I was told by the man that I didn t. Is there any way to fight this or to not pay the penalty because it is not my fault?

I was very disappointed, and I emailed her by saying that I wanted to have a second chance and try again and I really need the job as a summer job since i'm attending an expensive college that my parents can't afford. I tried other jobs in the past, but, they wouldn't hire me either. and I don't want it to happen again. please help! I really need this job, and I'd like to know if there's a way to have the second chance I need to get this job back!
