Unfair child support laws

32,849 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'm a single parent who has always worked to provide my daughter. Never did I receive money from her dead beat father nor did I worry about it. I worked hard to do what I needed to ensure she didn't go without food, clothes or anything else she wanted. So no I don't believe spouses should sit at home collecting a check they to should be made responsible! Get a job like the rest of us and quit leeching of the ex and government!
I owe my daughter mother 7000.00 in back support. They have now started adding interest to my back support. Now i owe 18000.00. Interest has already accrued on the child support. How can they start interest again on this money? My daughter is 29. I help pay her rent and car repairs. Her mother doesn't need or want the money. Child support is a racket.
Men are treated as sperm donors and open wallets for all the unfit , lazy slob mothers looking for an easy payout to sit home . It's Disgusting and needs to be addressed and changed !
A father's parental rights are often ignored, favoring the mother's parental rights. Sadly, men are treated as a financial provider only in the broken court system while the father and child relationship suffer. Reform is needed to reflect the rights of both parents and the child's well-being.
Females today have no morals or values. They believe they are entitled to child support because they made a stupid choice and got knocked up. If you are not married DO NOT REPRODUCE! A man that sleeps with you shouldn't be obligated to you or a child they did not consent to have. Should you choose to have unprotected sex, or intentionally get pregnant by a man you are not married to that's your problem! Have some self respect and common decency. You are not god, you do not have the right to make life altering decision for the man or child. The kid is going to grow up to be messed up in the head and the dad will resent it and you in the end.
I should not have to pay thousands of dollars to see my kids....
I work 60 hours a week to provide for a family of 4 as well as pay child support for 2 children I am not allowed to see because my abusive ex wife used purgery to win her court case. I struggle to pay my bills at times. My ex wife has a new man that helps with her expenses and yet I still pay the same child support as I have No financial ability to take her back to court
The system is broken
