Stop Unfair Practice by New York State Courts against Fathers

Messages Sent So Far
We are asking that the unfair practices be stopped. The percentages on Child Support are outrageous enough, but to go by gross income and not consider the father and his role to provide for his family is a shame. If a father has bills, mortgage, car payment to pay this should be considered. A court should NOT be allowed to take money without considering the cost of living for his other children. The courts have put father's families out on the streets and have broken families apart. We are requesting the State of New York revise and make it FAIR to both parties. If a wife remarries, her income with her husband should be considered. If a husband remarries and have children his new life should be considered when having to pay child support. NO CHILD should have to suffer yet the children of father's of NY state are. These children have to suffer on Christmas, with school clothes, not being able to enroll in extra curricular activities, not being able to enjoy living in a nice home, not being able to have a nice meal every night, and most of all not seeing their father who works countless hours to make ends meet to be able to pay his outstanding child support obligations.<br />
I am a female, who has watched the court system fail so many fathers. This needs to stop. A child's needs should be based off simply that...their needs, not how much a father makes. The higher it goes the more money the ex gets to spend on herself. <br />
If a father decides to get a separate job to make ends meet, he is out of luck his child support will go up again! This is a never ending vicious cycle, and the perfect tool for spiteful ex wives who have everything to gain while watching their ex husband suffer.

Sometimes mothers only pursue custody for child support, how many times does a woman have to prove she is unfit to raise a child and the child is better off in the hands of the father.

I am also suffering from this unfairness. The child spends at least 50% of his life at my home, the home where he was brought to when he was born and will always consider "Home". The mother, who just picked up and left one day while I was at work, earns more than I do yet I have pay her. The last time the mother tried to have my visitation suspended, child told his lawyer he wanted to spend more time doing things with me. But, while she gets to take him on vacations and trips and eat out ALL of the time, I have to borrow money from my mother every month just to keep the lights on in the home he loves to come home to. After taxes and child support I bring home slightly more than 1/3 of what I earn and as a humble human services worker I do not earn a lot. It so painful that I can't make the memories with my son we would like. I am so proud that even with this situation he still loves to come home, leaving behind his mothers expensive gifts and activities. BUT WHAT DO MY WORDS MEAN. IS THERE SOMONE REALLY LOOKING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. I PRAY EVERY DAY THAT SOMEONE WHO IS ABLE TAKES UP THIS CAUSE. SOMEBODY HELP....PLEASE!!!!!

NYS family court has the most corrupted system. Fathers aren't allowed to speak in the court. Mothers are always given the full custody even though she has a new spouse with criminal records. Child support always awarded to mothers regardless of how many days children stay with the father. And not deductible tax return because legally the father is not a custodial paren.t.
