No, she can't. It's your phone. And she is an abusive invalidating woman that needs to seriously get over herself.

“People don’t really want to know anything about you. They just want to put you into their little preordained slots. They decide what you are in the first two seconds, and they only get nervous or upset if you don’t live up to their snap judgements. That’s the only way the normal world’s like the Real – it all depends on who people think you are. Figure that out, play to what they expect, and it’s clear sailing.”

No, techincally she cannot take your property off you, however if you end up telling her that, she could well tell you that she technically doesn't have to provide you with anything, and could kick you out of the house...

Basically, she can do whatever she wants under her roof, my mom would do the same things when I was like 18, I payed for the stuff I used, but she'd take it away, you either let her take it, or you get kicked out, is what happened for me anyways.

This is my sig.

If your things were in your name, or were your property, your mother didn't have a legal right to take them away. The same goes for the OP, if you pay the bill, and it is in your name, you can refuse to give her the phone. Keep in mind though, she has the right to kick you out if she wants.

Since you pay the bills for your phone, she can't take it even if you live under her roof.

Ah yes, teenagers. The joys. Tbh she can do whatever she wants and there isn't a great deal you can do about it whilst you live under her roof.

If the bill is under her or your fathers name, then you're screwed. If the bill is under your name, she can't take it.

As long as you live under their roof there is not much you can do. You're going have to ride it out until you're in the position to get the fudge out.

Nope she can't take it away unless you let her... and DON'T let her. When my parents had paid for my computer and internet they threatened to take it away so many times and sometimes they actually did. Now that I've bought my own desktop and laptop and am paying my own internet bill, they can't take it from me. It'd be considered theft even if they are my parents.

You could charge them with theft, they'd probably give it back...but then you'd have another monthly bill to pay, called "rent"...at your new apartment.

Yeah, the cellular telephone is in your name, so they maybe can confiscate it if you were out-of-control....like Britney Spears. Otherwise, they can't.

However,

"you ain't gettin' no dinner" is a valid outcome, too. I hope there aren't any members here eating Mighty Dog or Fancy Feast...from the CAN!

Although Fancy Feast apparently has real salmon....

yooper: yah
troll: no school, man, it was sweet
yooper: you closed school for three feet of snow?!?!??!?

You can move out if you really want to, but you would have to have money to support yourself. Are you graduating this year? If so, hold out just a bit longer, until you graduate, and then get a job and/or go off to college, move out, and never look back.

Ah yeah I remember this like it was yesterday... My mum always took my mobile from me when I was young and crazy lol. Lesson learnt - if I ever have misbehaving teens, take away something they really love and they'll soon behave.

I've been thinking a lot lately about taking chances and how it's really just about overcoming your fears. Because the truth is, every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you're always glad you took it.
