Unfair child support laws

19,037 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 to pay my ex wife almost $1000 a month I have a wife and another child. I bring home $1600 a month. You can't pay a mortgage and insurance and a car or groceries for $600 a month.... Just a note papers say I have my child 8 days a month but every month is has been 50/50 I have calendar records. So I'm not a dead beat and I am getting screwed seriously. Why does our government wanting to screw dads?.
Fighting with The Mother of my husbands first child currently! We have been together 10 yrs he was never married to her the child will be 13 in July. They have always had 50/50 dead even amount of time each and child support was waived in 2003. Now after all this time (7yrs of the child's "mother" not working) she is filing for CS. The court will grant her said support even though we have put him through private school we have cared for him and have been financially responsible on our time All because she doesn't have income!! She doesn't have income because she chooses not to have income! She was awarded $450 a month in a separate CS case with Baby daddy #2 for sitting home on her butt and Daddy #3 will be next I am sure! Unreal how my husband is financially responsible for him for our 182.5 days AND now on her 182.5 days but she is NOT!! How is that fair to us how is it fair to my stepson who is being taught you can sit on your butt have a bunch of kids with different guys not work collect CS foodstamps medical etc?? He now has to live a less fortunate life at BOTH houses since half of what we would normally use to give him the BEST at our house is being taken and given to his mother who we all know will use on hair nails cigs etc for herself maybe an occasionally outfit for him. The GOV pays for his food The gov pays for his cell phone the gov pays her Cash assistance!! We pay his medical we pay his schooling!! Beyond frustrated with the system!
I just paid off welfare my audit amount was 97,000.00$ I got garnished for 250,000.00$ n I'll never get the agonizing years back they " the welfare " over charged me 153,000.00$ I took the case to court n the case got throw out because I didn't live in Fresno California all in all the destruction the welfare cussed on me from there extortion of my finances is in my future ... Welfare you are pigs and my kids never tasted the money you took from me and now they hate me becuase they think I never sent them anything all these 22 years ..... I did but the welfare took it. Welfare you are pigs at the working mans expance and the children you say it's for the children you are liers . PIGS......
This is very true.
I have 50% joint custody. I pay all cell phone bills, medical bills, extra curricular costs. My ex quit her job and had another kid, with a different guy, and filed for assistance. Then the state of MN scheduled a hearing and is now taking $600 from my income and giving it to her. So, instead of being able to make payments so my kids can get braces, mom gets to buy a new coach purse or whatever else her greedy little heart desires. The system is broke, hopefully someone has the courage to address it.
"Stop Bichin"... Start Marching !

No wonder nobody gives a @#$% what we think.

We are INVISIBLE to the powers that be.

Last I checked, some of the mothers getting support don't give a #&+@ you can't pay your bills. In fact she's living better than you are.

We ought to man up and show up and &*%$ these blogs and do something. Yeah... I said it !
If this country believes that families are suffering because of the weak families then maybe laws need to pass to defend good fathers.
Their are gold Fathers! I'm one oof them.
This country needs to call bald Fathers and empower them to have the freedom to care for their child/ dren.
Child support laws are unconstitutional.
There is alot of abuse being done thru this so called child support system. I paid money all the time to my ex to go towards my children even before I went to court to start paying child support I dont make very much money at all and I work hard amd always try to get my boys everything they need amd I go without. After pestering me that I didnt give her enough money even when it was all I had nothing was good enough to her she threatend me of not getting to see my kids and with taking me to court for child support. She gets almost half my check every payday I can hardly buy food or anything I cant afford to fix my car so I walk to work just to pay her. Mothers have all the rights she knows she has the upper hand and its happening to fathers every where. Im dissapointed in the unfairness of this system today it is onesided theres no looking at the situation just hand your money over is what its about.
my child support payments have been set way past what i can afford and my exwife has always worked because of this i have been put in arrears that will take the rest of my life to pay off.
