SSD and Child Support?

My daughter's father has never helped me with her since the day she was born. He has begun to receive Social Security disability, but owes no child support. How do I go about getting financial help from him? We have recently become homeless and I lost my job. I am feeling hopeless.

Do you have legal aid or some other access to legal help for low (if any) cost? Does your local goverment have a branch to deal with child support (garnishment of income, seizure of assets to pay delinquent accounts)? You'll likely need to go to court, prove parentage and provide reason why you haven't pursued the matter until now.

Good luck!

Your message is a little confusing - are you presently separated?
It is not clear if your husband is the legal father of the child.

You need to go to the Social Security office and ask your questions as they are really the only people who can tell you if you may be eligible for benefits and what you will have to do to be able to file.


They will inform you of any papers or forms you will have to have.

Everyone may be curious as to why you are not getting child support but if you are not divorced or legally separated then you may not be able to request/demand support legally.

You may be able to get some help if you visit your local family services office, but - Again - go to your Social Security office ASAP.
