Stepparents With Children in Common
The participant and the stepparent may each have CA eligible children, and also have children in common. When this occurs, the following apply:
‚óŹFor CA, consider TPEP eligibility first.
The case may be ineligible for TPEP, and neither parent has a disability. When this occurs, consider CA eligibility for each parent. Two cases can exist. Use the original application for the one parent and their children; use a copy of the original application for the remaining parent and their children. The child in common is not eligible to receive CA.
NOTE When either parent has a disability, see Mandatory CA Participants.
