Quoting Peppa pig:" My BD pays child support according to NYS...the whole 17% of his income route...I feel guilty about it ... [snip!] ... scared of posting this for the fear that I will be made to feel guiltier but at the same time, I need a little guidance here."
i'm not exactly sure why you're feeling guilty....? if the child is primarily with you, then that money is going to diapers, food, etc., so what is there to be guilty about? if he can't afford his rent and bills, then imo it is poor planning and budgeting on his part.
