I don’t have any way to support my baby, her father is dangerous
Q) I don’t have any way to support my baby without help, but her father is dangerous. Is it safe to get child support?
A) If you think that you or the baby would not be safe if you try to establish paternity or collect child support, and you need to be in a cash assistance program, you can talk with your caseworker about showing good cause for not naming the father. There are safeguards in place to protect you, such as a family violence indicator that can be placed in your records so that your personal information is not released to anyone who is not authorized to view it.
