I am on Foodstamps for my 2 children ( from a previous marriage I am now divorced, living with my boyfriend and we have a child together). The DTA is stating that I can no longer recieve foodstamps if i dont provide them with my boyfriends income as they need to apply that to my recertification paperwork. My question is why would I have to provide his info If the 2 children Im on the program for are in no way his. He has no obligation to provide for them and I dont expect him to. What are my rights here as I prepare to file an appeal on their decission. I am not on any other state aid, but i only recieve 90 a week for the kids...My SO works his ass off and we still struggle, The FS help us keep up with the rest of the bills. I have filed a modification for the childsupport as 90 is just ridiculous and the EX has gotten a much better paying job since the divorce. If thatnumber goes up Ill be able to go off state aid but until then I really need the help to keep enough food in the house. We have a 10m son and he has a 4yr old son that we also provide for. I cant work because childcare is so outrageous. Anyone have any clue as to what I can do???
Yes we all live together and have from the beginning, just now that we have a child together they are asking for his income as well.
