I got married in February 2016 and filed this

I got married in February 2016 and filed for divorce this month. We never lived together.I filed for divorce because I realized my husband engages in illegal behavior, such as he had moved to Philadelphia PA and continued to drive with Florida plates for half a year.I recently found out that he had been using food stamps that he was not qualified for. He obtained them over the summer and did not update the office when he started working. He says the food stamp benefits terminated this month.I know that this is welfare fraud. We never lived together and he never bought me food, so I didn't benefit from it. I also had no idea this was even going on, until I found out last weekend.Do I have an obligation to report this crime?Also, I live in NJ and he lives in PA, so please let me know if I'm obligated under either state law or federal law to report this?Thank you.

I am being investigated for food stamp fraud. I have 4 kids and 3 are with my ex which is who is on my application. I didn't claim one of my kids or the fathers income as I didn't realize you had to when you aren't married and don't have any mutual debit. Now I am freaking out that I will be in trouble for a mistake and get legal actions. I don't know what to do

I live in ***** ***** and I may be under investigation

I live in ***** ***** and I may be under investigation for food stamps and Medicaid fraud. I have not received a letter but I spoke with someone over the phone. Just looking at options and thinking I need to seek counsel because I am at fault.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: Yes I never was 100% truthful when reading certifying for my benefits. The office called me today and pretty much bullied me into canceling my benefits and stated that because my answers on my form seemed suspect they didn't care if I cancelled my benefits they were turning my case over to the fraud departmentJA: OK got it.

I have been a resident of my home state the entire time I

I have been a resident of my home state the entire time I requested and received food stamps for myself and my son. I accepted a scholarship to school in another state but as an out of state student. I was approved for food stamps in my home state at all recertification but then at this last one, the semester before I am going to graduate, the worker said I was not a resident anymore and was never entitled to food stamps. She denied the continued benefits and said I am going to have to pay all of the money back. I am absolutely terrified, as I am the sole parent of my son and I am afraid I am going to owe a lot of money I don't have and be prosecuted when I didn't do anything wrong on purpose. What are my next steps?
