I saw an answer on another question, is this true? If a divorced family(mom and kids) is on any kind of state assistance, is the DAD responsible for paying it back, either through child support (state would keep money and mom wouldn't get it) or as extra burden on him?

I think people are understanding it wrong. If "dad" is paying child support like he is suppose to and on time and mom is still qualifies for assistance mom may get a lesser amount of food stamps, cash, medical but she will still get it. If dad is a dead beat and isn't paying a dime when the state catches up to him he will have to pay back that money according to what he was suppose to be paying in the child support order. For instance if the state gives mom a check for $200 and dad was suppose to pay $150 a month he will have to pay that $150 of the $200 because that was what he was ordered to pay and didn't. If there was never an order in the first place then he would have to pay back the whole amount.
