A supervisor with social services says it is possible for children under the age of Aid for families with dependent children to receive Public assistance even though there is a Stepfather in the Home. As Long As a child is deprived of care and support by one of his natural parents then he is eligible under this program. The department has a number of cases in which a child is living with his natural Mother who has remarried. Since the step father is not legally responsible for the children unless he adopts them the children Are considered deprived of support from his natural father. In these family situations the step fathers income is not counted toward the children a support unless he voluntarily agrees to contribute to their support. Therefore it is possible for a family in this situation to have a Man in the House working and also buying an automobile. All persons receiving Public assistance Are allowed to own automobiles. However the equity and the value of that automobile is counted toward the Reserve which is applied to a Reserve scale to determine eligibility.
