  • Look up "deadbeat dad laws" in your state if he's not giving you child support.

    That is what this is about, right?

  • He's still legally required to pay for his child. I'm sure taxpayers would love to sit him down and explain it to him thoroughly. How about showing him this thread? Maybe going to the courts and making him pay child support?

  • im assuming this a** thinks he doesn't have to give your son extra money for his other needs and assumes the govt is taking care of all his needs? plan a visit to the child support enforcement office. your son is entitled to child support, the foodstamps/medicaid are separate issues from child support. he'll most likely have to pay less with you receiving those forms of assistance, but he still has to pay whatever amount they decide he needs to pay. and chances are it will come right from his check, so you don't have to worry about asking him. im surprised the medicaid office didn't ask you to file for c/s, they did here in florida when i went to apply for medicaid for my oldest and it was required that he pay c/s in order for my child to get medicaid.
