Q: I pay around $2100 a month for child support and pay 82% of childcare. It comes out to $200 a week for a morning sitter and $35 a day for an after school program ($75 a day). She works before school for 3 hours and 2 hours after school but is home all day. I also pays 50% of all activities. I am left with around $250 a week to live on. This just does not seem fair. Can anything be done?

Q: I have an 8 year old daughter and her father hasn't been helping me with his daughter like he is supposed to do on a regular basis.

Q: I want to put the father of my child on child support I'm just wondering what are the factors that go into making the decision. I have texts from him saying "he rather pay child support" because its less money apparently, but he doesn't put in much money to begin with I feel like that was just a way to scare me? Can I use those texts against him? He makes about $20/hr full time & now I'm really wondering if I would get anything from child support because he told me he wouldn't give me more than the child support if I take him.

Q: My ex-girlfriend had custody of my son for the last 20 years and lived out of state. Now he wants to live with me in New York. I'm not fighting to stop child support I'm just more concerned if you can get a New York state ID and start working without any issues. I want to make sure I'm doing everything by the book. Is it better if he just doesn't work or get a license here in New York until he's 21?
