How much can you make to qualify for indigent status?
by: Anonymous

I am a full time student supporting two children, I do receive monies for going to college to live on. I am not currently receiving child support, what is the maximum amount you can get a month in order to qualify for indigent status in Hernando County? If I did qualify, would I have to pay for mediation or would I be excused from paying because of my inability to pay?
