"The 100 a month is not considered child support, as it does not come from my ex, it comes from the govt."
Typical misconception. It is a contribution towards the raising of the child because his father is disabled.
"the local program is no more, or else yes I would have gotten in. SUNY shut down the program entirely."
So what are the 12-15 people who beat out 2,000 people doing?
"As for relocating costs, it is a fellowship program, which covers my tuition, 3/4 of my living expenses, as well as a yearly stipend that is almost equal to my current salary. Another plus is that I would not have to have someone watch my son after school while I was working, as my program schedule provides me the opportunity to pick him up from school and spend more time with him. The school my son would be attending there is a nationally ranked school, and has a better curriculum than the public schools do here."
Great. So how do the FATHERS in the area rank. because the kids FATHER will not be there.
"And when he moved it wasn't the distance, as he was already an absentee father, but the fact he could not even inform the mother of his child that he left the state was carelessness."
What happened to "If you can't say something nice..."?
"I wasn't looking for "love bombs" I asked for help/advice from anyone that has been in my situation, not insults and derogatory comments from someone who thinks he's all knowing and better than everyone else..."
I gave you advice, you will NOT be granted a move away to go to school. You didn't LIKE that. As far as being "better" than everyone else, never claimed that, but I AM better than you, as I completed MY degree, while working FULL time and raising THREE kids on less from their mother than YOU are getting in "child support".
Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
