  1. I wouldn't call to make an appointment, I would go down there and politely request to speak to the worker and get it straightened out. They can look to you for payback since she had to name you as father to get support for the kids. Also, I would document every effort to get this straightened out because there are also criminal charges that can be brought if the state wants to allege that she (and you) received benefits by some type of fraudulent conduct.
