Opinions on getting help from the state
So my SO and I have been talking about getting assistance from the state,for me this is a very tough situation because I feel there are more people in the country worse off then we are that need the help. But his opinion is that it is only a short time we will need the extra help, until I can get back to work part time when the baby is old enough and that every little bit will help in the long run. Did any of you moms consider getting extra help?
The state is also known for going after the dad to pay for medical care and assistance that they paid the mom. So not including him on the paperwork can come back to bite him in the ass later.
I also agree100% that there is nothing wrong with seeking help. Lots of people have asked for a bit of help at some point. And you've contributed to the funds with your paychecks. Take the help without being embarrassed.
