Unfair child support laws

15,937 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.

Do something about parents, mostly women, who use child support money to support themselves and their latest bed partner and the children get little. My ex, Deborah Dianne Titus, Jonker, whatever name she calls herself these days, uses support money to buy legal pot, they live in Kalkaska, MI where its legal and she buys that, and drives my kids around under the influence, kids say she drinks and drives as well. I last spoke to my kids Jan, 2014. I spoke to one and was told that she was fixing food for the younger ones, while her mother went out at night wearing only a swim suit. The courts in Kalkaska think its just fine that I don't know where my kids are living at this time, I cannot talk to them and don't know where they are. A lawyer in my state has been contacted, is working on this situation.
these laws are from the 50's and should be changed
It's funny the child support laws are supposed to stop people from making babies without the means of paying for them. Problem is people are always going to have sex. Alot of financially strapped people exspecially women use this to extort money from the govt. Not for the needs of the child but to fill up their own pocket. Meanwhile the poor father cant find qork in a jobless economy but is set to pay min wage. If he dont pay they take his license so thenche cant work at all. Doesnt that fall under the "cruel and unusal punishment" law provided in the eigth amendment of the constitution?
I work at least 60 hrs a week to afford child support at 2100.00 a month for two kids plus 400 in insurance after taxes I am left with 400 a month and she has a job making 15 an hour how is this fair !!!!
Why do women get do,icicle what is the parent fitness it should be looked into more because if they need child support they can't take care of the child
The law is in favor of custodial parent only.

There are too many people depending on child support to be able to get their hair and nails done. They are not spending it on the children as they should. The laws that are set in place basically force money from a man or else. Mothers who have children by people who they are not married to should not be able to receive child support payments. Some people end up paying child support even if they are taking care of their children. When I had my son, I was a teenager and I was basically forced to put his father (whom is now my husband) on child support or my child would not have been able to receive Medicaid. Do you see how the government forces men on child support just because they are not the person to give birth. I HATE child support. It is just another way to keep our men down. People make mistakes and should not have to pay for it for the rest of their lives even if they have straightened themselves up and got a family. A married man would not be an ideal dad to an outside child simply because they have to TAKE CARE OF THEIR HOUSEHOLD. It is not a sin to neglect a mistake that was made at a previous time that God had already forgiven you for.
