Customer Question

My girlfriend was visited by someone from DES and said they're investigating her because they think that when she applied for food stamps that I was still living with her when in fact I was staying at my sisters house, about 5 minutes away, for over a year. which we considered ourselves not in a relationship. She paid all the bills and the rent which are in my name. About two months ago I started staying with her for about a week at a time to see if we can work things out due to the fact that we have two girls, I haven't moved in completely because shes been talking about moving back to California pending our relationship status. Ant advice would be greatly appreciated.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Arizona
JA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?
Customer: No ma'am
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, I think that's it. I'm just really worried because we are hard working people we have two daughters. And it seems that they don't believe her that I wasn't living there because she has pictures of me up, for our daughters, and I have clothes there.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
