Unfair child support laws

32,185 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 just had court today. While the system does take child support from my paycheck, I have paid her directly in the past at her request. I am a union construction worker. So changing companies is common. In the time it takes the state to take it from my check I pay directly and put in the memo section child support. Well when I went to court today and the judge said no those are gifts. She said with that being said I owe $127,800 as if I have never paid. But I have paid. She wouldn't even look at the receipts. How can this be?
I have 50/50 legal and physical custody of my children.Before the break up my children live with me full time.Now I have to pay child support I am 95 percent responsible for the children financially. I don't understand why she can't work and help me support are children.Only a quarter of what I'm paying her go to the children.the rest she spend on herself as she see fit.
Totally Unfair

I take care of my son, while my ex sits at home collecting my money. She sits there and lives like a queen, not worrying about the next $500.00 she spends while I sit at home worrying about how I'm going to get the next meal on the table for my kids. I would love to get a better paying job, but if I did then I'd just have to pay in more. I just want to make a good life for my kids, but I can't because I have to pay my ex money that she neither needs or deserves.
I think unfair how the woman in child support get away with getting so much money from a father if the father is present. I used to have a job that really didn't pay much and I went to school and worked very hard to get a better paying job. Now that I have a better paying job the courts take away more money from because the mother makes less than me. I have always been present and spent what ever time I have available to be in my childs life. I think it's unfair and when I see my daughter she's dressed so poorly. It's upsetting because I don't even know if that money goes towards my daughter. Her mother now makes more than me because of the money I am ordered by the courts to pay.
It is obvious that there is something incredibly wrong with our legal system. It is a reflection of our entire governmental system. The government is to work for the people and to do it fairly and in an unbiased way. What is going on in the family court is treason as the court system does not adhere to the supreme law , but in fact imposes whatever it desires based on the will of the judge not case law or constitutional law. It is why in some cases the mother is getting abused by her own county/state/government and in the vast majority it is the fathers who suffer the same fate. It has been proven that it is in the best interests of the child/children to have both parents in their lives an equal amount of the time. Only in rare cases such as severe neglect or abuse would it not be. There would be no need for massive amounts of monies to be paid out to either spouse as each would have to cover their fair portion when the child was in their care. Moderate adjustments for a short period of time when one spouse had spent more time as care taker and would need a little time to acquire the means to make an income that would cover the needs of the children during their custodial time. As a whole this would end the bias that is going on and stop the money making machine that profits off the damaged children it is creating and the broken families and destroyed parents it leaves in its wake. There is far too much room for manipulation the way family court is laid out and that room for movement is where corruption lies in wait for its next victim. I am a grandparent who lost my grandchildren ,because the mother was able to get away with cutting all ties to our family while still getting her child support. Dad was cut out totally. She was to give reasonable visits. The word reasonable is ambiguous and leaves it up to personal interpretation as to what is reasonable...in this case no visits according to her judgement. When the court finally stepped in they told my son he could skype his children. No physical contact. They took away his parental rights. Finally she pressed him to let her new man adopt the children. My son agreed as he had no visitation with his children anyway . Her attorney promised all back debt would go away and wrote documents that made it appear the case was to be closed and that no one would go after the debt. That did not happen. The legal system is responsible for the family it has destroyed and destroy our family it has. It has left my son a shadow of the person he once was and stole precious gems from our family. Not my country. I am not sure what this place I am living in is , but is for sure not the land of the free and home of the brave it is suppose to be. It is the land of the slaves home of the corrupt.
My ex wife filed for child support while we were still legally married but separated., in order to receive medical benefits during her pregnancy from another partner. Before child suport was filed against me I would pay for everything my daughter needed plus I gave her 300 dollars a month on top of that. Now the court grants her 724 dollars a month cause of my income plus she gets medical benefits for the child from another person, while she just sits at home not doing nothing instead of getting a job. I'm so tired this crap. No wonder you see all this cases out there on the news when father's go crazy and do something insane out of anger and frustration.. our government is destroying our lives and relationships with our families.. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

JOIN FREE: Federal Class Action for U.S. Child Custody Victims -

Friends, I just joined CAPRA as one of the lead plaintiffs in an upcoming landmark federal class action lawsuit against all 50 States and the Federal Government, because I qualify as: (1) a biological parent whose child custody was unconstitutionally removed without due process; and, (2) I have been directly impacted by that during the last four years, i.e., within the statute of limitations. This class action is on behalf of *both* types of "family court" -- for wrongful victims of divorce-and-similar-with-kids *and* for wrongful victims of child protection services -- and includes suing on behalf of ANY parent affected by either "family court" type.

It's totally free to join, and the federal court relief being demanded includes the full restoral of my child custody rights under law, plus a nice share of the large amount in civil damages expected. Check it out!

It just requires entering someone's referral Code to join, so PLEASE use mine - 42085JL619 - in the CAPRA registration form, located on the bottom of the homepage at http://parentalrightsclassaction.com

Child support is unfair and being put in jail for not being able to pay is wrong. Mothers use this system to keep the men who wants to be father's out of the child/children life. These mother's also use this system to inflict revenge of father's who either moved on to a positive relationships while they are still repeating the same kind of relationship that some of these father's have moved away from. Some women know that the state will give them support based on how many children they have. Granting child support orders should be left up to family courts and it should gather facts on the parents relationship to understand what went wrong, why it went wrong and who if any is to blame of why that parent moved on in that relationship. Locking someone up for non payment of child support is counter productive. What needs to happen is that the parents should have shared custody because raising a child is not about the material things that one can provide; it's about the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of the child. I hear society saying that these kids need there father's in their life especially these young men. So I ask this question: How can a man be a father to his child/ children if the mother's are using child support as a tool to keep father out of their children's life. I hear it all the time "Pay your child support and then I'll think about letting you see your child" to often. Child support is more than that, it is being there giving them guidance and moral support. It's about sharing life experience so that child won't make the same mistake as we did.
