Should child support be based off of minimum wage?

Child support is based on the absent parents wages. That's the best way to have it, cuz people make different amounts and wouldn't be right for it to base off of minimum.

Unless one parent doesn't work, then it's based off the non custodial.
what!

Even if the primary custodial parent doesn't work their income is based on minimum wage, they don't just put zero.

Nope. It should be based on income. I don't know how the courts come up a fair amount if the payer is too lazy to work. What's the number one warning sign of a loser? It's when someone is FORCED to have their child support payments garnished from their paycheck, because they're too selfish and irresponsible to pay it on their own.
wow

I completely agree!! It's stupid 2 have 2 force tha non custodial parent 2 have 2 pay. They should wanna help w them, I have had custody for almost 2 yrs and he has called once 2 c my kids but my kids r always calling 2 c him. He keeps making lame excuses up tho bc he's trying 2 start a new family. It's hard on them. He is a looser!!

If a man doesn't want to pay based off your income maybe he should have thought twice about having kids.

Why should a man that goes out and work his ass off to better himself have to give his ex more money just cause he makes more money. When women are capable of doing the same thing But instead it allows her to work a dead end job at minimum wage because she can rely on his child support to pay for everything for her. The state thinks you should only make 7.75 an hr so y should dhs think you should have to pay any more than that?

I understand things happen between couples, and sometimes they feel that separation is best. But, if you have to force someone to take care of their own children, they have issues. A non-custodial parent has no idea of how much there is left to do, besides just paying your part.

Yes I understand there are lowlifes out there that don't want to pay anything and don't have nothing to do with there kids. I pitty them guys because they really dont knw what they are missing out on my kids are the greatest thing that has ever happen to me. You people talk like the custodial parent should be able to set around on there ass and draw child support to live off of. Why should a guy pay more in child support than a woman would make in a month working a minimum wage job. Nobody has answered my ?

The money is for his kids!!! If he makes more, he needs to pay more!! The worst thing he can do, is hook up with another woman. That's when the problems really begin, because she will always be selfish!!

So you guys ad gals are saying since he's the father he should pay correct? Ok that's fine he should. BUT, what if he's the father, he works hard, has had the same good job for 5 years ( the child's only 3) and the mother doesn't work. What then? Should he have to pay more? Why should she not contribute to it? I'm just getting opinions not trying to fight/argue.

By law, the mother must contribute. Support is based on what you earn. You earn more, you pay more!

. Because while he was out crawling up the corporate ladder she cooked,cleaned, handle the kids,finances, and made it possible for his only concern to be his job. And now while she has to build her own business she doesn't have the luxury (and yes its a luxury) for someone else to physically do all cooking- dinner, doing laundry, doing kids home work, getting them baths, reading bed time stories, doing dishes, and all the other stuff that she did for someone else so he could focus only on his job. If she Physically takes care of the children the very least he could do is financially contribute. And if he truly loves his kid s he wouldn't throw it up her face or cry like a baby over it. I am sick of other women bashing other women for a damn mans ego and I am sick of men crying like little girls over money. If you love your kids unify by putting the kids needs first. I am also sick of arrogant people who think that just bc a women gets a descent amount of child support she she sits on her ass! I own my own business. I schedule my work around my kids so I can raise them not someone else. I bust my tail! I don't come home to a clean house and hot meal like my ex did! I do it all except for 4 days out of the month and I love it because I love raising my kids and all he has to do is write a check. And if he is going to complain about that he needs a good back hand to learn to man up.

There are mothers out there that are just like these dead beat dads. They're dead beat moms! They don't pay child support. Even though it's a hell of a lot cheaper then men have to pay! So it's not just men

. Yes bc he doesn't have the money to take her out and handle his kids. So he would rather cut on his kids for the girlfriend.
