What do you do when you can’t take care of your child? You can always get governmental help if you’re a US citizen. This is the nice thing about being a US citizen. You get help from the US government. It’s better than giving up your kids to social services or going to jail for abandoning little kids. However, because people don’t know about these programs, they treat their kids badly or they don’t have enough to care for their kids. No child should be treated poorly; you should get them help at the local welfare office.
If you have kids that are under 18 years of age, they can qualify for monthly checks and food stamp checks. They can also qualify for Medicaid and even child support payment. You would have to check it out at your local welfare office. Your child would qualify no matter what, you should do it to get some assistance there. If you don’t, you will be overwhelmed with responsibility.
How much can you qualify for? You will get about $300-$700 per month for payment of food, or rent and also Medicaid for your child. This will really help your child. It’s better than nothing really. What do you need in order to file for help? You will need to be a family with low income. They will give you a budget. If you are a single parent and working, you can still qualify since you don’t make enough to care for your child.
Even if you have both parents, you can still qualify if you two don’t make enough money for rent, food, and healthcare. You must not own a business or too many assets. If you do, they won’t give it to you. The most important thing to remember is to fill out your case with accurate information. They will do a check up on your case and will know if you lie.
