Unfair child support laws

17,125 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.

My ex and I had 2 children. She cheated on me with3 different guys. I left her, now im stuck sending her money every month while she lives off the goverment drawing well more than I make in income. Why should I send her money when she takes a free ride off the goverment when both our kids are in school and with me half the time. Shes more than able to work while im in another relationship and have 2 more children I still have to send my ex 60% of my wages. That should be a crime against the goverment

It is unfair that the mother has no income and I have to pay an Outrageous amount of money while the mother does not have a job or do anything to support the child financially leaving the entire burden on myself to support 2 households.

She and I never married. As soon as she was pregnant she broke up with me. It was her intention to take advantage of the laws in place.
After 4 months after my ex refused to let me speak to my kids, my 11 yo daughter calls me, she had to sneak a call to me at her friends house using her friends cell phone. She told me that right after her mother got her money on her support card, she went out and brought back legal pot (my ex has a legal pot card), a bottle of liquor, and is now complaining she has no money for gas, she gets food stamps. My ex wont work, lives with a man named Terry Coon in Kalkaska, MI. He has a job, brings home about $600 a week, she does not reveal this info so she can get more assistance. I send her $1115 a month in support, she can get cash off of this support card and spends it on this as well as tattoo redos, piercings, hair done, etc. My support money is not supporting my kids! Her name is Deborah, Dianne Titus/Coon on FB. Please look into this and so many other situations. So many of us pay our support, court will not back us up about visitation and phone calls with our kids (parenting time) that we are entitled to, we have done nothing wrong. Please review these child support courts and agencies, they are not for our kids. If they were my 11 yo daughter would not be calling me crying and wanting to come live with me!!

I'm only paying $410 a month which seems to be far less than many of you, but I still take issue with my situation. The mother of my child takes the money I give to pay her bills that she had before my daughter came into this world. I know this because she told me. I understand kids bring on other expenses, but you shouldn't blame any expenses you had prior to your child on them. Then when I see my daughter she has on too little clothes, mismatch barrettes, etc. She receives govt assistance and recently had another baby for another guy. She doesn't work at all anymore because "she doesn't feel like it". I understand I must do my part, but I just wish that how she spends the child support was monitored. I just can't possibly fathom her receiving $350 a month without being able to buy my daughter diapers or new outfits. She stays with a guy and now her 2nd child will come with expenses. I just want my child to get what she needs when she's not with me out of the money I send.
I am paying $850 a month for child support to my son's mother who moved from Minnesota to Oklahoma I haven't gotten to see my kids in eight years now where are my rights it's a crime if I don't pay but is not a crime for me to not see my kids she doesn't want me to see them she doesn't want me to have anything to do withI got a hold of my oldest boy in school once about two years ago I asked if this was his name and he said yes and he asked who this was and I said your father and he hung up on me so that told me there's parental alienation going on again I ask where are my parental Rights?
I'm too broke to go to court because I am only left with enough to live on covers gas and groceries, my parents Who are retired are using their Social Security to pay my rent my electricity my heat bill my car insurance and my cell phone now again I ask where is this fair? With what they're taking out well I am only left with about $300 every two weeks I don't have money to for car repairs it is an unjust system I have never said I wouldn't take care them But with what the guidelines are I am not left with anything to live comfortably myself I don't know where they come up with their dollar amount that they put into place but that is extreme.
i was abused by this System .it needs work..my child Support helped care for a grown man.and my Kids were told i didnt pay.i payed as long as i had a. job .even to the point of being homless
I am sick an tired of seeing our men in jail or prison just because they don't or can't afford child support!!!! It's ridiculous that what they charge our men weekly to pay. This is an outrage!!
I grew up in a home where my father did not give us enough child support and my mother got up and worked to support us. I have friends who want to be involved in their children's lives and because they make more money than the women (who choose not to work) have to pay half of their income to these woman who use it for personal use, cars, vacations, etc.. I think the laws need to be reevaluated to make the custodial parent (be it female or male) have to give a full account of where every dime of child support goes. Especially when they have remarried and have their new spouses income. This isn"t for the children anymore it is about people wanting to be lazy and take hard working people for granted! It is crazy to expect a person to support two households (in different states/cities, some more or less expensive) and still be able to have a decent lifestyle and not even consider the cost the non-custodial parent has. It is madness! And too many people are taking advantage of trapping wealthier people into paying for them because they are lazy and don't
My issue is as follows. My youngest daughter turned 18 last year and had not graduated, but I was being told by her and her mother that she would graduate in the spring. The child support agency had started sending the payments back to me because her mother had not returned the required documents informing them that she was still in high school or a full-time student. Keep in mind that I had a 0 arrears and payments were being deducted through wage assignment. Three months pass, and I file a motion to have the child support case closed, but instead the child support agency begins to take the money out of my paycheck again, because they say the mother provided a letter from the school stating that my daughter was still enrolled. Fast forward to May and my daughter does not graduate, so I have a second hearing and her attendance can not be verified. It is now August 2014 and I finally get the transcripts from my daughters school and she was never on track to graduate in fact she needs 90 credits out of 220, she had 47 days of unexcused absences from school and withdrew on April 1 of this year. All of that, and yet the child support agency claims that she is still eligible for child support. The law needs to specifically define "full-time" student and require school attendance as a part of the continuance of child support beyond the age of 18. Who holds the Child support agency accountable? Please Support!
