They are a joke! I don't know how many times they told my ex to keep current and every year they summon him and let him go! I have to wait till they take his tax refund from him! The judge us full of shit by telling me they will handle it but never do! I wish we could get a decent judge in this town!

lets get real most of the time ppl want child support is becouse of hatred and revenge. Iam on disability and get a whopping 658.00 a month. She still wants me to pay even though she makes 30.00 bucks an hour. She loves to brag about how independent she is and how much money she makes and even tells me i dont need your money iam fine on my own oh but when i miss a payment becouse of land taxes i have to pay she threatens me with contempt of court. Its all bullshit and the goverment needs to change the law when it comes to so called child support!

WOW! first off..job or not..fathers that are ordered child support should pay. No mother is just looking for a pay check, So BECAUSE you couldnt find work makes us totally responsible, we always pick up your slack of a parent, just because you all are behind doesnt mean we dont get behind or not pay a bill so the kids can have what they need!! ANd OBVIOUSLY if you are behind, how to you expect to care for your child if they lived with you, the mother is obviously doing something if the child is alive and doesnt go without! You all might have great children and thats AWesome you admit that, but the mother cares for them...Hm!

You have to realize that back in the day men always left their families and created new ones across the country without sending a single penny to their kids with their prior relationship. I took care of an elderly lady age 88 til she passed away. She said that her father told her mother he was looking for work and left her in the sticks in Kentucky. Moved to California and found another woman, married her and had more kids. Never called them sent money, Nothing! So this has to be in the Early 1900's cause this lady passed away in 1998. Not saying it's right but that is why men get labeled more than women. You are one of the very few who do take care of their children. I know mines dont and i never put him on child support and when my daughter grows up to be successful he will be nowhere in the picture.

the problem is the fathers get behind and think they dont have to pay! well guess what the ones who have the child have to pay electric for them, food for them, clothes for threm, field trips for school and so on gas to take them where they need to go! and the ones who dont pay are getting off easy by god it took two to have a baby so two should pay for the baby! but i have to say that i dont agree with them going to jail they should force to take everything the other parent that doesnt pay has not put them in jail cause guess what it dont get paid either and some men just dont care to keep going back to jail its a free place to live eat and watch cable tv! not cool! something needs to be done this is rediculous!

I know what can be done. Pick better men ladies! Goodness... Why would you make a baby with someone who already has kids he's not taking care of? Stop sleeping with anyone and everyone. Wait to make babies until you know you will be with him for forever. And before you say it, I know about divorce. Yes, some marriages don't make it. But if we would at least TRY that would cut back on most of this crap and then the courts and welfare and child support office wouldn't be so overwhelmed with single mothers and dead beat daddies. Yes, it takes two to tango..... but you picked your winner. And many mothers keep doing it over and over and over again... how many dead beats are you going to collect before you figure it out? WAKE UP LADIES. MAKE BETTER CHOICES BECAUSE YOU ARE THE ONE WHO HAS TO LIVE WITH IT. The courts can only do so much. There are too many loop holes. Be proactive, teach your daughters not to follow in your foot steps instead of defending your actions. Learn from your mistakes. And yes, I KNOW this doesn't necessarily apply to all... It's just frusterating watching women and young girls make the same mistakes over and over and over again....

ex-wife is behind OVER $20,000, our son is now 15. Fathers are labeled as "deadbeat-dads", what about the mothers? They cannot lock her up because she has other children now and arresting her would just take a mother away from them. I've seen Amy Milliken and the social workers recommend jail time for men without even looking at the circumstances of the case. Family court has been a nightmare and a failure.
In all honesty women have been locked up to. My mother was put in jail for a little over a month because she was behind in child support for my younger sister. She had me and my youngest sister in her care at the time of her arrest, and they didn't care. So yes, even if they have other children women CAN be arrested too. Just keep fighting it.
(My mom was locked up even though she could not pay her child support because she could not work due to medical problems. My mother STILL can not work, but my sister is 19 now and the child support is no longer needed)
you must be kidding

See your situation is different, You should be trying to get your support reduced until you get your income back up to snuff... I was referring to the parents (and women do it to) that have the means but refuse to pay as they should.. You would be surprised at the number of people who choose to buy a couple of cases of beer a week and not pay the support.
The only thing you are right about is that his situation is different. Did you not hear what was said about the living conditions of these children. That poor beleaguered gentleman shouldn't be petitioning the court for a lowered child support amount. He should be DEMANDING custody of his children and the "support" obligation should be placed on the drug addicted mom. Then maybe she will have to give up the drugs and broken relationships in favor of the things her children need.

But the biggest issue by far in this whole discussion is that children need the love and encouragement of BOTH parents. Their emotional well-being is FAR more important than a few measly dollars. Money cannot buy that! They do NOT need to be limited in how much time they can spend with either parent by the other parent, a judge, or anyone. Not unless a parent is a danger to a child because of violence, drug addiction, etc. People should get over themselves, their jealousies, revenge, greed - and whatever other feelings lead to childishness, and irresponsibility - and realize that your lives do not belong only to you anymore. You have an obligation to your children. Both parents have an equal right to raise their children, unhindered by any court or by the other parent in ANY way. It is the responsibility of both parents to cooperate with each other and get over your own petty feelings in order that your children can grow up knowing and loving both of you the same. It doesn't matter what a court says; NO ONE has the right to separate a parent from their child without an overwhelmingly good reason. And that term "visitation" is a joke! Whether you live with your child or not due to circumstances, BOTH parents have an obligation to care for, raise, and love their children - and the right not to be restricted in doing so. In fact, God Himself set things up that way for a reason. And if the parent is being mature and responsible, no one will ever have the capacity to love a child more. For that reason, step-parents who are members of the household with a "custodial" parent should have no more time - and far less rights with - the children than the "non-custodial" parent.
no - you are wrong

There is a division of government, and a separation in the information that is allowed to be passed back and forth between the two. There are MANY people who are limited by circumstances in the amount that they are ABLE to pay for their children, but are MORE THAN WILLING to give their children the money and things it takes to make their lives wonderful. No amount of laws and court decisions will ever change that. However, it is uninformed, uneducated, and judgmental simpletons with bad grammar like yourself who over-generalize and over-simplify situations, thereby participating in making life more difficult for many truly good parents out there whose lives have been ruined forever by divorce and a greedy ex-spouse.... People who live every day in the fear of having insult added to injury by being locked up by arrogant and uncaring decision-makers who hide behind the phrase "best interest of the child," but who nevertheless refuse to take the time or energy to apply logic and compassion to a situation in order to produce an outcome that is TRULY in the best interest of everyone involved. Meanwhile, both that parent - and the children they love - are forced to carry on each day coping with grief, loss, and a broken heart - and no resolution to what could be such an easily-resolved circumstance. LOVE AND COMPASSION.... That is what the children are "owed," and what some of these "deadbeats" "owe!!!" (To use your terms.)

i know someome one who is a deadbeat mom, she collects ssi, ordered to pay 50 bucks a month and still does not pay, she would rather buy alchohol, and cigarettes, that's more important to her than her child, the government should garnish ssi or social security checks for child support if you owe.

Well first of all I understand where ur coming from, But when The person with full custody gets laid off or suddenly no longer has an income, do we just say oh well, No job, guess my kids wont eat, or drink, or use electric, or anything that requires SOMEONE to pay for... NO... We find a way to care for our children, so Im not buying the I lost my job excuse anymore, Point Being, as A PARENT it is ONLY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to provide for them.

EXACTLY! My ex is on disability too. I dont make $30 an hour, but could make it without his support. I have in the past considering he rarely pays it. But we both made our child and regardless of who makes what, both parents should be equally responsible for the child. Same goes for when the father makes a lot and the mother sits at homw and doesn't work. He shouldn't be required to pay more because she doesn't want to work. And the mother shouldn't have to pay for everything to raise the child just because your cheap. If she makes $30 she obviously worked hard to get where she's at.
