Unfair child support laws

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.

My wife and I have been divorced for 9 years now and we have 50-50 custody of our daughter who is 10, funny thing is though I have her more than 6 months out of the year, my ex only wants the money, but I have my daughter on ALL holidays and breaks, I have her for 3 months during the summer (end of May to the end of Aug). I have her Thursday through Sundays almost every weekend, which its supposed to be we rotate weekends. I also pick her up every day from school and take her to my house and she is there from 3 to 6pm every day until her mom picks her up. Yet I have to pay a full year of child support, pay for all of the insurance. I buy all my daughters clothes, I pay for her lunch every day at school because her mom won't make her lunch so I do it. Her mom gets all taxes back. This is the most corrupt system I have ever had to deal with!!
Here's my input as both a payee and a payer of Michigan's Friend of the Court, and as someone who has worked in conjunction with the FOC. While it's true it appears the court is biased against father's because it so vigorously goes after them, it isn't because they are the father's, it's because they are usually the payer. The FOC has a vested interest at going after the parent who is the payer. They also reap financial benefits with the more they pay. Time and time again I have seen them not follow their own guidelines the outline what is in the best interests of the children and award full custody to an abusive, mentally incompetent of actively using parent as long as the other parent had regular income. I have seen this in two counties in mid Michigan. You have people coming straight out of college, never working in the private sector going straight into a well paid public sector job who have no clue what it is like for the average worker. They routinely allow over payments to occur, they allow administrative changes to change Court ordered child support to amounts that far exceed guidelines. They do not do what it is in the best interests of the children, they do what is easiest for them and the most financially beneficial for them. Title IV-D is their cash cow. If you want to know of a judge that has no problem allowing a drunken violent, repeat offender who was pictured on Channel 6's crimestoppers, and a violent 40 year criminal history to have custody of his children while the mother had been clean for 10 years, look no further than Judge Richard Garcia. Of course ever since he lost his own case in court he tends to have a blind eye when it comes to the men in his court.
Here is a solution let's factor child support on minimum wage and per child. So that if you better yourself you are not bettering your cheating ex wife and can actually help your child. And if I want to better myself I can without penalty.
My husband of 19 years had a short affair with a women it last about three months. Well during that time they had sex once and yes I know that is all it takes. she was in a federal 1/2 house on work release but still managed to find time to creat a child. The child was conseved in late Feb 2012 and my husband and her ended it mid March 2012. On Nov 16, 2012 the child was born and on Nov 29 she called my husband to inform him he might be the father she was not sure, so he thought for sure he was not since he did the pull out method again does not work. On Dec 10 we found out he was and since than we have been going back and forth to court trying to get permit support ordered. Yet she does not show will not let us see the child and has an arrest warrant. But what does CPS and child support do. Nothing she is the mother. And they also want to use my income along with my husbands for the means of the support he should give. And our kids they say I work full time and have a sencond job so I can support them so he should not have to and only support the new child. This is just wrong I cry every night knowing this women does not work and all my money I work so hard for goes to her she smokes drinks and who knows what else. Not saying my husband should not pay support but he had no choose about the child and still has known but we are 85% finicial responable for support/medical/and child care.
My wife left didnt see our children for two months. Gets joint(50-50) custody. Now I have them more and on paper its 50-50 but I am now payiong a total of 1000 dollars a month for 3 children that I have equal time. Im also required to pay for health and dental and 70% of all costs associated. When mom left she made more than I did and her new boyfriend doesnt want her to work. So Im about to lose everything I own! How can I be dad now????
I had owed support for my three children and then my wife and I got back together I sent payments to child support division they informed me that the payments were lost they came back cashed by the state of ny when I asked what the interest was at that time they did not have a program to calculate such interest now the monies owed are 210000 dollars my children are in their 30s???????
WV laws are a JOKE!! Why wouldn't my mortgage be factored in to my child support??!! And the fact that she lives at mommy and daddys house rent and bill free.....
the law is so unfair for good dads!
I feel its not right at all
There needs to be a max %. Not add on and allow states to take 110% of anyone's salary for support!! This needs to STOP
