Yes I offered to pay the money, even though i do not receive child support, only 100.00 from his disibility. I am in NY, i applied to the progam that was here initially, but due to state cuts, the program too was cut. I tried to stay local as I applied to quite a few schools in the surrounding area (under a 4 hr drive from current local) unfortunately, those schools did not accept me as my major has a very competitive, limited program.
My son has already expressed his want to come with me, and when his father and I discussed this with him he told both of us he would go live with dad, but only if mom came.
I am not a hypocrite for not wanting to leave my son who has lived soley with me for the last 6 years of his life, I am a concerned mother who has seen the disinterest he has in his sons day to day life. He was ok with this when I applied to the schools, as I let him know every step of the way (we are civil), until I got the acceptance letter and he told his parents that we were leaving, then all of a sudden he changed his mind.
one more thing "gr8dad" if you were raising your children and you had to move temporarily for a job or something, would you leave your children with someone who doesn't even know their teachers name or the childs after school hobbies/day to day stuff, then come back for them? if not, then you sir are the hypocrite here...
