My baby's father is on SSI disability. Is it possible to get him on child support? I was told I would just get my own check for my son and it wouldn't affect the father's check. Is this true? Please help.

I don't know about in Fl, but in OH I think they take a portion of the father's check out and give it to you.

You will get a check from social security. For me I get that for my son which is child support.

My son gets a full check of his own and his father still gets his entire SSDI check. They do not remove anything from the SSDI check. If it is SSI and not disability then they will remove a portion of that check. I asked a Social Security Disability worker and she said SSDI is done the same in ALL 50 states. No state is different.

Thanks. Yeah he has SSDI. I just wanted to make sure I had it right cause him and his mother are trying to stop me from getting it by lying and saying there is no possible way for me to get it but their saying that cause they wanted it to where the father would get the check and control it to where I would have to beg for money but they wouldn't get the check I would.

All you do is take your child and your proof he is the father, his SS# and your documented proof of where the child resides and the Social Security Administration will deal directly with you. Since the child in in your care you will be the person receiving the money in behalf of the child. He can not do a damn thing about it.

Im in florida and yes but u have to file and he has to be on the birth cer. if not that will need to be established if he does not make a lot u wont get one as well...



My Son's father is on it and they will not pay me because his income is so low. Also dept of revenue for child support has also told me because it is SSDI that they will not take money out so i guess im shit out of luck.

Well I know they won't take money out of his that's why I was told I would just get my own check from the government. He gets SSDI but he gets the highest amount of money someone can get on it. And he's not on the birth certificate but they will just do a DNA which I'm not worried about. I know he's the dad cause he's the only person I've ever been with.

file with dept of revenue then once u do that they will do the DNA and all that and tell u because he is on SSDI that u need to go down and file off him once u do that u will get ur own check.



I just got a letter from the state saying they dropped my case yah buddy fuck yah no more dealing with them and i still get my benifits.
