Asked in Criminal Law, Child Support and Social Security for Texas

Q: Can my EX use my social security number for child support

I have my children with me. I am currently taking care of them. She is not. I just found out that while she was signing up for child support she used my social security number. Is she allowed to do so?

EDIT: She is trying to place me on child support and has provided my social security number to the child support office. I have also learned that she has marked herself as custodial parent as well.
