As a solo mother who has never received child support, I applaud that you provided numbers for readers. Although it’s been a struggle, I have to say, I have seen enough children scarred from deadbeat parents in and out of their lives, and heard horror stories of family court, and as you mentioned, child support not being paid— I feel grateful some days I don’t have to deal with the drama and emotional stress, and my child doesn’t have to deal with disappointment and confusion.
