If I am collecting food stamps for my son can that affect the process of legalize my status once I get married? 3 Answers as of February 15, 2011I have been collecting food stamps for my son because I am a single mother and I really need the help. I will be getting married in a month but I need to reapply for the foods stamps now, my question is can that affect the process while I am legalizing my status through my husband?

The important thing is to document that what help you get has been going straight to your son, assuming that your son is a U.S. citizen. If that is the case, you should be okay. If you want the help of an attorney with yours and your husband's case, please feel free to call or e-mail me to set up a consultation.
