If you were a child support worker? **EDIT**
So I've posted before about taking my ex off of child support 4 years ago. When I took him off of child support it was with the stipulation that it was for only 2 years so that he could get himself together and be there for his daughter who was born prematurely.
Needless to say it's been 4 years. Now I've been in and out of work over the years. I'm currently out of work atm but I'm calling a company on Monday about a work from home job (I interviewed for the job about 3 months ago and told her I would call her back this month)
I've never had health insurance through a job. I've either been on Medicaid or no insurance at all if I made too much to qualify. I rarely get sick anyways.So with the passage of Obamacare everyone has to have insurance or get penalized. Without a job Idt I'll be penalized but him back on child support would allow me to qualify for Medicaid until I get situated with this job and can get my own health insurance.
The purpose of putting him on child support is 2 fold: 1) because the time limit I gave him was up 2 years ago and 2) I can only qualify for Medicaid if I put him on child support.
Now my question (finally right?) Is if you were a child support worker would you allow a mother to pursue child support just so that she could health insurance?? The child support requires you to list the reason why I'm reopening the case. The reason I'm giving is because of the timeline we agreed to not because of the health insurance qualification.
Does any of this make sense??
EDIT: Putting him on child support is not solely so that I qualify for healthcare. I need the help until I can get back on my feet. Being able to qualify for health insurance is an added bonus. Once I get back on my feet I can either give him the money back he pays every month or take him back off.
