Why would child support (which is NOT paid by the govt)be stopped.

And from what I have read food stamp money was secured a year in advance and I have no idea about wic.

 In my town child support goes through job and family services so I thought it was included. I dont know much about this stuff.

They have essential and non essential personal. There should still be someone in the office.

Just from what I have seen on the news, foodstamps aren't affected. WIC had enough in reserve to cover for the upcoming week, after that, it's highly possible they won't be accepted. I saw on our local news that they may not be accepted this week. Child support I haven't heard anything about. That is a state level thing, I believe.
