Unfair child support laws

17,669 Letters 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.

I have paid $36,000 of the $38,000 of my child support to date. Yet a judge in Hemphill County Texas has now sentenced me to 240 days in jail for contempt. The monthly rate is and has been set above my means at a rate that if continuously paid in full (even with working a full time job) would cause me to become homeless.
Yes I agree,too many ex wives want a free ride.
Too many women want to
Stay home in the trailer park, and chase after men, While watching the money pour in!
I'm a working mom who pays child support and I get to see my children 2 days per week. Their dad has taken me to court over and over and alienated the kids from me just so he can collect money from me. We had 50/50 and agreed to only reimbursing for insurance for the kids, but he had to have it all, the time and the money. The system is broken and needs to be reformed. I also get the privilege if driving the kids 140 miles each day just to get them to and from school during my timeshare yet I get to keep none of the money designated for the "care of the children".
I think child support should have a cap, and there needs to be a defined outline of what the child support money can be used on. Also, the custodial parent should have to show receipts. The current child support system encourages women to engage in misandry and single motherhood.
Both parents should be financially obligated to provide sustenance for their children. Spousal income should also be taken into consideration especially if the custodial parent decides to opt out of work and stay home.
How do they make u pay when it was niether court ordered r a paternity test? I have two open cases like this, one im paying for and it wasnt court ordered the 2nd i was at wrk over the road i was a truck driver until they suspended my license now that i dont have my cdl's im only making $9.25 an hr n they take $140 a wk plus my job gets a $2 processing fee for each case oh n did i say my support payments went from $82 a wk $140 a wk in less than a yr check goes down childsupport goes WOW!!!
I have custody of my two grandchilden. Under the current laws may oldest grandsons so called father does have to pay a damn penny as of 2 months ago. He was 8 thousand dollars behind. Never paid me a penny in 21 months I have had custody. On Aug 6 he went to a doctor said he has anxiety the doctor then wrote a letter stating that the father can not work until Aug 6 of next year. Really on one visit. How nice that the court then say he's not obligated to pay any child support. Not even the back support. No one pays anything in support for 2 grandbabies. Where is the law to help the children?????????????
I am a woman and I think it is sad that men are all seen as deadbeats. This is not true at all! I know a few fathers that have had to sue to even get to see their children and the mothers still don't abide to court orders. These dads struggle to get by while these woman drive around in fancy cars BMW's, are always on vacation when the father wants visitation, and have expensive clothes and purses. They need to account where that money is being spent and should be required to work just like the father is required to work! the costs should be 50/50 of actual child costs and not costs of the custodial parents private life. Or half the income of the higher paying parent. It really isn't right to award people who have babies just to collect the money. And not having to show where that money goes makes this situation worse.
