So advise him that 1 and 2 are his options?

Re: Bank of Snafu

No, what I mean is that the "adult" thing to do would be to tell his dad himself that he wants the check and those two savings accounts (plus bank statements) turned over to him before going to a lawyer. Has he done that?

As far as option 2, he could just contact his GM and tell her that if the check hasn't cleared to put a stop payment on it and send all future checks directly to him. Just IMHO, a declaration of "I'm an adult now!" by an 18yo is less effective and less well-received than adult behavior.

Re: Bank of Snafu

no - I don't know that he understands that's an option .... or maybe he does and has kissed the $$ goodbye/hopes he'll get part of it in the future

Re: Bank of Snafu

Then I'd tell him that before I'd tell him he could go to a lawyer. JMHO

P.S. If this is a true custodial account, DS may already have access to the accounts.
