In the state of arkansas?

if i apply for food stamps, will they MAKE me file for child support from my ex who has been absent for 5 years? i dont want child support, because i dont want him to get visitation because he is unfit. my son has a dad now, but because of the economy, we are needing a little extra help right now.

    It is that way in every state. The children's father is financially responsibly party for your kids, even if he isn't in the picture. If you need help feeding them the state needs to ask him to help too. Also, the child support counts as income and they need to account for it.

    This is a rough time and I hope you make it through it OK.
