My ex wants to do 50/50 custody so that he can get more foodstamps

That's right. He is with his wife who has 3 kids of her own and doesn't work, they have one together and she is pregnant again. He makes OK money but not much at all, it's to the point that the CS I get based on his income is not much to me but it would screw them over so I just let him keep the money.

Now he is saying he wants to do 50/50 why, because then he will be able to get foodstamps for her! I guess he is thinking that I would still buy all her clothes and things if we did 50/50 because I can't imagine that one more person would give them that much more food.

 I would say no. 50/50 custody should be because he has a need and desire to be more involved with his child's life, and that the custody would be in the best interest for the child. It shouldn't be to get more foodstamps. I would find that to be an insult to my child.

Oh I have no plan to I was just shocked that he would do that. What kind of a person tries to make a child live half the time in a home with 7 other people just to get a little more in PA?

Personally, I think that if you are on PA, you shouldn't be able to get MORE time with your child unless it is unsafe for the child to stay with the parent they are with at the time. If you can't provide for the children in your care, you don't need more children in your care

Should all the parents on PA get less time with their kids?  If they aren't divorced, where will the kids go?

 If you let him slide on cs he is just going to keep having more kids or find ways to scam the system like he just asked you too. Make him responsible and have him pay the cs.

 My dh would probably agree with you. Then again he thinks all children whose parents cannot provide for them should be put in state run homes.
