If you haven't, I recommend checking off the work study option on the financial aid because it can help you get a job on campus. You should apply Monday for child support through the county court house. It should be garnished from his paycheck through the state. It is based on a percentage of his income, but it is worth the time to go through court to get it.

I also recommend going to the county welfare office and applying for some of the programs offered through the state. It can also help with the expenses. I recommend applying for Medicaid, child care assistance, WIC, and Food Stamps.
