  • I believe it depends on the state. You might be able to google AFDC (aid for dependent children) and your state.

  • The only way it should effect anything is if you are living together.

  • Only if yall live together or get married. If not it doesnt matter. I get Aid from the state and my baby's father and I have been together for a year and don't live together anymore. But they will make you fill for child support against him

  • If you're getting married or living together it will, otherwise, you're considered single and they'll only look at your income, etc to determine aid. I'm currently going through a similar situation, 22 and 6 weeks so I understand where you're coming from ;-)
