Hello! I will be reviewing your question and posting a response momentarily; if you have any follow up questions please respond here. Thanks!

Ask Your Own Family Law Question

I am sorry to hear your son was placed in this situation.

Badger care is income based;

here are those limits:

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size*Maximum Income Level (Per Year)

1$35,640

2$48,060

3$60,480

4$72,900

5$85,320

6$97,740

7$110,190

8$122,670

So everyone in the household is counted for income purposes- so if a party's income is not disclosed the applicant can be prosecuted for fraud.

Additionally whenever a government (state/fed) subsidizes a minor child, the state can seek reimbursement from the parent-either the mother or the father

Her oldest son she does not have full time either

Basically any misinformation that is provided to the agency with the intent to defraud can result in criminal prosecution and a civil judgment to repay the agency the funds that were a result of the fraud.

She lives for 7-10 days at a time to go up by her boyfriend and has left my son with the 2 littles one with no running vehicle or car seats
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
Live/leave sorry about the mis type

That is separate than the government assistance programs.

That would be a child custody/visitation issue and possibly, if there is neglect, a child protective services issue.
