Dds biological dad is incarcerated. We have child support order in the state hes incarcerated in. But I was told from a few people that I should be able to coklect welfare(?) From the state im in and he'd have to pay it back when he was released?

Does that sound right? Idk. Ive never had to deal with this before. Hes already 8k in the red, would that matter?

Thanks ladies. I really have nooo idea :/

Texas will make the non-custodial parent payback any welfare that the custodial parent receives while the non-custodial parent is in prison. Check with your state and find out.

My understanding is that he will need to payback the welfare, and this is where child support will go.  So while he's paying for the welfare, you will not get child support from him.

Stick it to him any way you can for being in arrears, jail or not.

So sick of men who don't take care of their kids, my stbx pays monthly even WITHOUT a court order as we are still in negotiations of the divorce, but my neighbor next door, who is a dear friend, is self-employed so no paycheck to garnish AND he closed his bank accounts so she/they couldn't garnish that. Makes me sick, but his kid is 16 so not like it's life or death or homelessness for his kid, but still!
