Obviously No Self Support Reserve in NYS
So as you may know, GG (the biodad I live with) is now paying the SMALLEST amount of CS he has ever had to pay since moving in with me.
That being $1,000 a month. . .and he makes $15 an hour on a 40 hour work week.
You do the math. Just looking at the Housing and Utility Charts for NYS. GG is FAAARRRR below the figure even for just housing and utilities after CS and taxes are taken out.
Obviously there is no self support reserve here in NYS.
I also noticed that in the Behemoth's county (one county over) the average cost of living is quite a bit below our county) Her county has a reputation as "White Trash Nation" here in NYS, whereas our county is more or less a thriving "suburban county" outside of a major city.
Even with all the taxes and CS GG pays AND claiming the one child (out of three; the Behemoth claims the other two) he STILL has to pay in on April 15th.
Come to think of it, April 15th was their wedding anniversary. I would have taken that as an ominous omen!!! :jawdrop:
The system is VERY much broken!!
