  • How is he going to help financially if he has no job?

    It will make no difference if he is unemployed. you will still get tanf and he will still have to pay child support for the months he is not working. If he doesnt get a job soon that will add up and he will have the risk of getting put in jail or losing his driver license.

  • If you get back together it will include his income...However, since he doesnt have any, they wont take your benefits careful though, all that stuff has a time limit!! You dont want to look up when your 40 and in a bad situation and not have any benefits left to use!!! GL..
