Excellent and timely answer, thank you. I just am floored that NYS is so horrible against fathers. Because the "25%" is for child support only. Then they add Spousal Support, Day Care, Retirement, and my Veteran's Disability to the mix. That is why I am being forced to pay so much. I was just hoping that there would be some sort of reprieve for me being in another state and the fact that my Ex forced me out of the house and the marriage. As in I know that there is another man, because my 3yo Son keps talking about the "other daddy," I just can prove it.
