Child support vs SNAP benefits.

About 3 months ago I contacted Nikki Haley's office. We have a child who's father was ordered to pay child support. Guess what he doesn't. SNAP(Food stamps) reduced the benefits we receive by about $100. We informed them that the child support is not being paid. The reply back is to prove it. We live about in a 200 mile round trip of where the child support was ordered. The county he was ordered to pay child support in wants us to go, in person,to get proof that he doesn't pay and they will not let DSS know that he doesn't pay. Thus I wrote to Nikki Haley's office that she should require the records of payment or non-payment of child support to be made available to DSS. Not just for us but for all records. Why shouldn't it be? Another case of the child and custodial parent being the losers. To this day I have heard nothing at all from her office. It's hard enough to fight to get child support payments. Their shouldn't have to be another fight with the state, when its not paid, to make sure your child is feed. So the final results are.

Child Support Paid:-$280.00
SNAP Benefits Paid:-$100.00
----------
Loss to Child per month:-$380.00

I am a working single mother. I have been divorced from my Childs father for 9 years. He has never paid his child support on a regular basis. My daughter has been lucky to get $100 a year. He is currently right at $20,000.00 behind on his support. I have been fortunate enough in the past to have a good paying job, so that I wouldn't miss the money. Last February, I lost that job. So I found a part time, minimum wage job (the only one I could find). I was denied SNAP benefits because I made too much money. Meanwhile, the x husband still isn't paying. He got ruled in to court a couple of times, but was let out/off without paying a penny. I truely do not understand out system on this matter. And would love to take to Gourmet Nikki Haley personally so I could just explain to her my situation. Because no two are alike. I do not live above my means. I like in a single wide trailer i'm a trailer park. U don't have cable TV or internet. My brother pays my phone bill. My daughter wears hand be downs and Walmart clothes. While her father lives less than 3 miles from her and well, I don't need to paint that picture. Discouraged in Georgetown,SC. And very disappointed in my government. Please help me.........
