For my entire pregnancy and now my daughters first year of life, i had medicaid (as did she after birth) and for the last year we have gotten food assistance too.
I had no idea when I signed up for anything that I would be required to give the fathers name.....but when my daughter was 3 months i got a letter that I needed to give his information. I was so scared to do this b/c he was not around yet would tell me he wanted custody and yet he never came to see her and was drinking every night and doing who knows what....So I lied and in writing I said that I did not know who he was, and that we had a relationship for one night only and I had made a big mistake...basically i made myself look like a tramp.
I am in school and I hate being on assistance. Now to make maters worse, my daughters father is filing papers to get paternity established....i am fearing what will happen if they find out I lied.

Don't freak out, just cuz he is saying he is going to file papers he might just not he might be doing that to scare you, if he does file papers and they find out that he is the Father it's not like they can prove anything and that kind of stuff happens all the time, mothers don't know who the father etc. etc. I wouldn't cancel your benefits and just let the whole thing play it self out, you won't get in trouble but if you start cancelling things it will make things really suspicious, you wont get in trouble.
Remember don't ever volunteer information and when asked questions answer them to the best of your knowledge.

sorry I just read what I typed and my grammar is ridiculous, I'm trying to watch a movie and type. Don't cancel and don't volunteer info, you will not get in trouble this kind of thing happens everyday, don't be scared and good luck.
