things are tight. The cost of groceries, gas and other necessary things has gone up and in many cases salaries haven't kept up with the increase of living expenses.It's hard for dads to manage on the same amount of income and continue to pay child support. Also, they have the additional expenses of buying food and paying for entertainment when the kids visit.
