Can a married woman apply for food stamps if she is just separated from her husband? He works but she does not at the moment. They have two children and she has both of them. We still live under the same roof because I don't have any money for rent.
My question is will she be denied because of his income even though she is seeing none of it? She is working on being divorced, but that is a lengthy and expensive process and she needs help with food now! He refuses to help her. And YES, she is working on getting an attorney and making him help her...but food stamps would be a blessing in the meantime.
Thank you to anyone who answers. Illinois, ChicagoWhat is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
