Question about child support and welfare benefits
So… as I would have predicted my 27 yo SS’s baby-momma has filed with domestic relations for child support from him
I guess the fact that he still pays her cell phone bill, and her car insurance and gives her money every week, buys the child clothes, food, diapers, and has the child every night and most weekends isn’t enough… she wants more
Here’s what’s (even more) shady about this:
She applied for assistance while living with us.
She has a SNAP card which she would use to shop for her mother when she was living in our house, she was getting cash assistance (not sure if she still does) and she has health insurance for her and the baby through medicaid (??) she also is the beneficiary of whatever kind of grants that she can get and is getting her associates degree as a paralegal
All this wile using our address as her residence
She moved out like 6 months ago and has been living with her mother in the next county
She went to domestic relations in the next county using her mothers’ address as her residence
Her “welfare” paperwork still comes to our house as does her department of transportation stuff and her school stuff
I always thought that if you were receiving assistance, that would be mitigated by any kind of child support that you get.
Is she trying to ‘double dip’ by filing in the next county over?
If anyone has any experience or knowledge of this please let me know
I am also concerned that we may appear to be involved in whatever fraudulent activity she has going on
