But welfare still doesn't give them "whatever they want". And most people on welfare are not choosing not to work. Only a minority are like that.

Back to your issue, why, in 14 years, have you never bothered to file for the child support (I'm not just talking now)? Because you have to miss a day of work? I don't know where you live, but quite honestly, if you haven't filed for child support in 14 years, then you kind of don't have a right to complain that you never received money from him and can't afford to raise your child and can't qualify for assistance. If you want to claim welfare of any sort, you really do have an obligation to at least have a child support order in place. Is this why they are making you pay it back? Because you hadn't filed for child support?

I'm pretty sure people don't go on welfare and receive whatever they want.

Do you have a child support order in place?
