I'm sure some version of this has been done, but I'm curious how others deal with this:
DS (I'm BM and CP) brought home a paper from school on free or reduced school lunches. According to a lot of people here, SPs are to be mostly disengaged. CP and NCP are the parents and they are responsible for their child, correct? Then why is the SPs income required since they ask for "household income"? I work PT and my DH financially supports me to be a mostly SAHM. I receive a decent amount of CS from BD. Shouldn't my income and BDs income be all that's needed to qualify for these things? (still way overqualified)
SMs- if/when such a paper comes home, do you list your income as "household income" on the paper? Or do you leave that out? Does the state catch you?
I see it as unfair to the SP if they are supposed to butt out in taking care of this kid and yet are required to list their income on something that shouldn't be their responsibility.
