I have a written agreement from my ex where he pays me $1,000 dollars a month in child support and he directly deposits that weekly on to a pre paid walmart card he supplied me with. He is a self employed man so it's more difficult to have it directly attatched to wages and simpler to have him just wire it.
My question is I am considering reaching out for some food stamp help and I know they generally go after the non custodial parent to make sure child support is paid. Will they accept the direct pay as long as I have proof of it? Or will they make us go to court and try to have it taken out of his checks?. I think that will be more difficult as some weeks he has no pay while others he has substantial pay.
