I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. What do you mean "rights to receive housing as I am only getting child support"...what does that mean?

Is there a court order for support? What does it provide??

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.
