Going ANON since I am embarrassed by this. My husband works full time, same employer for 3 years, great guy. In 2001, before we met, he wasn't so nice. He got a drug felony, prison, parole. Clean now for all these years, no new arrests, married, employed, kids etc.
I lost my job due to the economy. We have been struggling & decided to apply for foodstamps only.
Since he was convicted they said he can't be on the case but they'll use his income to determine eligibility, which, for only 4 of us left without him, is too much. So we don't qualify.
Any way around this? We are married so do I have to use his income or can I just put me & the kids on the case. We have zero income except $200 C/S for my oldest son.
I'm so upset since I'm trying to go back to college & having an open welfare case would qualify me for the BOG fee waiver but without proof that we are now poor, our 2009 tax returns DISqualify us! HELP!!
