If the children live with the father and he takes care of them yes she should have to pay child support. And vice versa if the mother tales care of the children and they live with her the father should have to pay child support.

I wish you would put your name out here you want to talk trash but you don't want to back it up. You know so much about M you must have been "OUT THERE" with her. Put your name out here or are you scared that she will crack your head?

There is no difference in a women paying and/or a man paying child support. I know of several women that pay child support. And they see that its not as easy to shove the money out as they thought when they were recieving it. Personally i think child support is a bunch of crap. A true Mom or Dad will be there if they truely care. But as alot of us see there are both mom and dads not standing up and doing whats right and making their children their number one priorities its really sad so i guess child support is supposed to be some sort of excuse for them to say there part of thier childs life. because they pay.

If the children live with the father, yes the mother should pay child support. If the children live with the mother then the father should pay child support. But it easier said then done.

I feel the same way...why shouldnt she have to pay she carried the child for 9 months....if the father does have the kid/kids raising them then why shouldnt she pay she is still their mother?

A Mother is no different from the dad. If she dont want to rasie the children I thinks she should have to pay child support. I know a few women who is already paying child support. It is not gonna hurt them. They shouldnt be treated any different than men in my opinion.

The only problem is parents often see child support as helping the ex-spouse out and get so mad over it. I think that is really shameful. It takes so much to raise a child these days. Why wouldn't a parent want to make sure the child has everything he or she needs? I have never understood and probably never will.

I agree with that statement. As a single mother who is in and out of court trying to get my child support, that is how my ex sees it. That he is supporting me and not my son. Which is so not true, but some people don't get that and some parents don't care. I am not saying that all parents don't care, but some don't.

Well, for example, when an ex-spouse gets lots of food stamps, HUD, has a medical card that pays 100% on medical care and meds,etc...and never buys the child any clothes, shoes and rarely gets them a haircut, etc...and they smoke their dope 2-3 times a day (probably in front of the kids)and go partying every weekend, dumping the kids off somewhere/anywhere EVERY weekend and going off to another county/city partying, what would you feel like? and....some will not get a job to try to help themselves-I believe there are some really good, honest people out there that really try to do right (and use the child support money to at least make sure the child doesn't look really shabby) and I also believe there are some real selfish people too.

How ridiculously sexist is this country that people think only the responsibility should fall on the male parent? I'm so sick of this misandry.

what do you think of a mother who sends her child off on a weekend for visitation without a coat, just a light jacket, when it's cold? The child has a coat, the child is cold, but she doesn't allow the child to wear it. What is the purpose of this?

I have more money than my ex BR so I want ask for a lot from him, his woman is in jail right now, its hard times when the weed is gone.
Whoever you are, you really need to grow up and get a life instead of worrying about mine...I have it under control...you are trying your best to start stuff guess what sweetheart what comes around goes around. And by the way Byron pays his child support! You don't know as much as you thought you did, Do ya?
