Unfair child support laws

Messages Sent So Far
After children turn 5 they are in school and those women who collect child support sit at home doing nothing when they could be working part time to help support there children. It use to be the male as the main source of income, not anymore, we live in tough economic times, where it takes two in the household to support children. Why should those women stay at home when they could be working. The law should be added to so that those women don't have several babies and then wait for the child support to come in. They should at least be given some finacial responsibility as well as the father. After there youngest turns 5 they should should be required to work part-time to collect there child support. Nobody should have a free ride.

Funny that people don't know that the states get a dollar for dollar match from uncle sam, the same amount the states child support impose on fathers. Conflict of interest does not hold to the best interest of the child.

If we as a society want to progress against gender roles, then men and women both need to be required to contribute financially and emotionally to raising their child. The law needs to be modernized.

Yes, i agree with this. I have a friend who's ex purposely does not work because she can make a couple of thousands from child support. On top of that, he still takes them everywhere because she refuses to do anything because she is mad at him. I am also looking for a change in the amount of child support. It is too much in many cases and women use the money for personal wants, not for the child. There should be both a set amount based on average cost of child care. Both parents should have to work to meet their half. And it should not increase or decrease based on what the parents make. Europe has done this for years and they don't have all the scamming of gold digging women who can set men up.

I pay child support. I also love my children. There has to be some way to correct this wrong. Many fathers have be stripped of a simple life bc of a court order obligation.

The paperwork that they send to my employer has costed me to jobs because of the amount of paperwork they have to fill out. They took my driver's license. They suspended my bank account. 80% of jobs that would have been available to me or no longer available.

There needs to be some major changes to this law. Its horrible how the parent who's paying child support suffers financially while the other parent sits at home collecting child support. On more than one occasion, my husband and I lost our home because child support granted his ex wife more money. It caused such a financial hardship that we had to ask for government assistance for food and ultimately lost our home. This is far more than unfair, it's unjustified to put a family out of their home while the majority of the parents that collect aren't being held accountable to be financially responsible for their children. The law is enabling and promoting laziness in these parents, while punishing the hard working parents by robbing them of their hard earned money making it near impossible to survive.
