Unfair child support laws

16,657 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.

Im married and on disability and more than have of my check which is 1800 nine hundred abd eighty five goes to my ex for child support and she is married and works at a hospital
I have been denied access to my children and yet have never missed a CS payment, all of my denial of parenting time petition's have been dismissed as irrelevant, I demand that shared parenting be the norm and not the exception!

She Lives IN Henniker NH. And She Gets Away With It! Something NeeDs To Be Done, Its Not Fair To All Those Dads That Have To Pay The Childsupport And Her FrigN Welfare! Time To Wake Up People!
I' m paying child support now and its not easy, and what makes it worse is i have joint legal and physical custody over my son, why should i pay child support if i have my son as much as the custodial parent who works, why cant my money stay in my pocket to support my means with my child when he is with me, instead of going to someone who uses the funds to get there hair and nails done.
I hope that one day men and women who give birth to a child, whether it be in wedlock or not, have equal rights to the child. I may be young but it effects everyone in some way. Women and men should have to pay child support if one does not have a job to support the child, until the jobless parent finds some means of work to help support the growth of their kid.
This law is being abuse my multiple women and needs to be rewritten to where birh parents are required to take care of the child
I was a loving father of my daughter since she was born. I was there from the beginning all the way until she was 5 years old. I bought clothes fed her took her to fun places, paid for her health care the whole nine. Then one day her mother decides to start a new life with a guy she just met. No problem, I thought. I would simply continue to be in my daughters life as usual. I was wrong. Her mother decided that since I was behind on child support that I could not longer see her. You see at the order was filed in January of 2010 but I didn't have to go to court until October of 2010. Apparently the way it works in Missouri is you are responsible for payment upon the date of the filing. I had no knowledge of this rule. So October 2010 rolls around and not only was I slapped with a $600 a month child support payment, I was also $4200 in arrears. Mind you I have 2 other children which I am current on they each get $583 and $500 respectively. I only make $50,000 per year and my monthly take home pay is right at $2000. You do the math. My Rent is $525, Car Note $445, Insurance $110, Utilities $300, Student Loans $250. And to top it all off I still cannot see my daughter. Haven't seen her since June of 2012. This system is unfair.
NY child support court ordered about 78% of my income be withdrawn from my check for months until got it modified to legal amount which still to high. It put me on the brink of homelessness and Financial hardship that I'm still trying the recover from. Child support is not to help children at all it's to make hard working Father's suffer for no reason, it's a million dollar racket for the Govt., and mothers can sit back get money they didn't earn which maybe 1-10% goes to the kids. The actual deadbeat dads get away scottfree because you can find them, or they're in Jail, or don't work. This is an unfair system
It is sad that a man has to go to jail for child support. It should go down on your taxes like everything else. Just because one women has the man on child support doesn't mean he doesn't have more kids that need him out in the world instead of in jail. Time spent is more than any money. These women getting child support food stamps cheap housing and utility checks driving nice cars ain't working. They ain't doing nothing but using the government and they letting them. Its sad the system acts like they killed someone and had to throw them in jail and the only thing they did was not pay a trifflin baby mama looking for a hand out. I got a child too and if my baby daddy can't help me I'm cool I'll get a job and take care of mines I don't need no man. I laid down ill support mines. I'd say this if a women is gonna receive child support DSS need to make monthly visit to make sure that the child isgetting what they need ain't dirty and got beds to sleep in. Don't make it so easy for this women they using the men and you too.
