Advice on Allowance for stepdaughter...
Please post advice on how to deal with allowance for my 14 year old stepdaughter. We pay $800 per month to her mother for child support. Her mother took her illegally out of the state and sends her back MAYBE once a year (we've gone as long as a year and half without seeing her)..but never stopped payments.
We get about 2-5 day notice that my stepdaughter is coming which requires me to rearrange my schedule. The last time she stayed for 3 weeks.
Her mother sends her WITHOUT A SINGLE DIME. Should we have to give her allowance? I work 3 parttime jobs to pay rent and we really don't have a lot of extra money. When she comes it costs a lot to have her.
