Baby daddy using medicaid on my son?

Q:I was in Pa and just returned to NYC and applied for medicaid to find out that baby daddy is applying for medicaid with my son. Hes taking me to court to take full custody (judge asked him to do paternity test) so hes not even considered a legal parent and yet got his way to use my son ssn for medicaid.

Is this considered fraud? What can happen at the court?

So he came in a year ago as I petioned him and already have one arrest for domestic violence and two harassment report. 

A:If you suspect Medicaid fraud, report it to Medicaid. As to whether it would impact the custody case, that would depend on whether Medicaid (or the police) consider what he did to be actual fraud or a crime. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
