My ex is on SSI and I get SSI for my 5 year old because he has Autism. Someone told me because my son receives SSI that I don't qualify for support. My ex has been voluntarily sending $100 a month but has asked me(yes asked me) to file the child support papers. Do you think I will get anything?Answer Question
I would do it. Why wouldn't you get support? I know that SSI means that your hubby can't work full time. how would that disqualify your son from support? But if he is willing to pay what ever they want him to then I would. If he can afford 100 a month I won't think the courts would take that away from you and your son. Every little bit helps. And kudos to your ex for at least attempting to help with financial support. Call legal aid just to be sure.

How can SSI be considered child support. I mean that is from the government. Child support is from the parents of the child. I can see it being reduced because the parent is receiving SSI, that means he has some form of a disabiliting and has a decreased working capacity. So I am terrible confused. Call Child Support or Legal Aid and that is the only way you will know for sure anyway.
