She lives with me. She has always gotten Medicaid. I now get Medicaid, food stamps, and child care assistance. Will the government put him on child support? Can he come after me for money? And do I have to let him claim her?

If I understand correctly you filed a Petition to Modify an already existing child support order in 2016. If that is the case then you generally cannot go retroactive from that 2016 Petition to Modify. You can still enforce the child support order that was in effect prior to 2016.
