Unfair child support laws

Women should not allowed to sit at home while collecting child support.

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 am a hard working individual. My ex tried to get me to sign my rights over. I refused, and now she has me paying nearly $400 in child support while she sets at home with no responsibilities whilst my child is at school. She's trying to convince me that signing my rights over is what's best and using the system to her advantage. I begged for 50/50 shared and legal custody. I was continuously told "it won't happen" by my attorney. I have to bend over backwards to prove that the mother is unfit, while all she has to do is change her marriage status. I genuinely believe that the mother should have to work just as hard as the father of she wants to say he's unfit.

Mothers should be enforced to report what the money is used for. Just like fathers are enforced to pay by being put in jail if they fail to do so. Also family lawyers need lower their rates.

I watched her gamble the child support the other 2 fathers paid monthly. AS SOON AS THE MONEY DEPOSITED SHE WITHDREW IT (at Casino atm} UNREAL !!! No monthly reviews on transactions. Age ,Number of children should all be reviewed too. After 1 child there should be a fair medium. Because if you have a child and need assistance ,having another is ultimately unresponible .

I think the system needs to start putting the child support on cards that only work to buy things for the children. A lot of these women use the child support to fix their hair and nails which is why men dont want to pay child support. It rarely goes to the children. I also think the system needs to also think about how much the father makes before making a decision on the amount. Because alot of men cant support themselves because they have to pay more then they can afford. And putting a warrant out on a person trying to find a job to pay child support is ridiculous. It needs to change.
