I think that some men shouldn't have to pay child support for example my boyfriend. He had a child with a girl who completely kept him away from him for four years. He really didn't even know it was his because of the fact that she told him that this child was not his and some other guys. He tried even making her do a dna test, he paid for it and all and she never showed up to do it like she said she would.So now that it's 2013 she filed for him to pay child support and he had to do a dna test that showed it was his. Plus on the paper where it said "possible fathers?" she only put his name on it. he responded to the court order like he was suppose to and she has done nothing about it. So his lawyer now is making her come to mediation and basically we feel like in order for him to see him, he has to pay her child support and some back child support which is bullshit because she told him he wasn't the father and kept the child away from him. Plus she doesn't work and never paid a dime for the child because she never had a job in her life.YES she physically took care of the child, but not financially So why should he pay child support when she kept him away and told him it wasn't his in the first place. I have kids with him too and he is a great father.

The hardest set-up is when your ex won't pay child support...;but he is narcissistic enough to attempt to educate YOU on how to raise the kids. Anyone been through that one? It's wild.

The Child Support Office is a joke. For the 1st time since I've been dealing with them, I lost my job. I went in the office to ask for a review & one would think I walked in & offered to sale my child! They were rude, unwilling to listen to me, and had the nerve to tell me that they showed my ex was "ahead" on payments even though I haven't rec'd a payment in months. When I showed them my records (which were signed by his attorney, BTW) they got all defensive & tried to tell me I didn't know what I was talking about. It was a signed court order! Signed by a judge in Greene Co court system! The CS office refuses to let me make an appt to speak to someone in a sit down meeting so I am left to communicate through that glass shield they call a customer service window.
I have always done the right thing, even paid my ex-deadbeat's portion so my kids would have what they needed. He quits a job about a month after C.S. is automatically taken out. We have to go through the whole process again. I would love to know what it takes to put his a$$ in jail. He ain't working or paying. Why shouldn't he spend a night or two being someone's bit*h? It's so frustrating! And no, before anyone asks, I am not on welfare of any type. Sorry for the rant.

You & I must have walked into a very different office. I love the lawyers there to death, especially Tina. But the gatekeeper & the next up the ladder - M.F. is her initials - are of no help to me (their choice). I have a feeling I am going to have to show my a$$, or better yet, have my lawyer show his, in order to get anything done.

The people at the child support office here are awesome, I lived on TX for years, have a TX order for child support, he never paid a dime, was either ignored or treated very rudely when I called child support office there. Moved here, put my application in, and within 4 months, I was getting payments, and his taxes! And they were so polite and friendly when I called or went into their office. I bless them every time I get a payment.

Darren Nicely had a child and hasn't paid his either. It is going on 3 years now and every time they start to garnish his wages he quits his job and I may get one payment every now and then. At least he is still filing taxes but I am sure that won't be long for him to quit doing that too. He has seen his child 1 time and never calls to check and has never sent Christmas or birthday card. What are the single mothers suppose to do? I am not on welfare i work, take care of my child and go to college full time. I live on my own and make my own house payment. My car is mine and I have worked for everything that I have. How is this fair????

Here's something really bad.. No that it matters, but I'm female, and I supported my ex-husband when he and I were married, though he worked, I had to take care of our children, clean the house, cook, go to work, AND pay for my own things and our children's things, cause his earnings were HIS. Then, he left me in the dust, after hurting me in a way I won't even get into, he took away my babies without so much as a warning or time to prepare, and now he wants money from me, but won't allow me to see my precious babies.
You all think you know what ALL goes on, but the story sometime goes deeper than we think..........

I am a single mother of two children, their father left for the babysitter. he paid for a total of 2 years he is now 3 years and $36,000 behind. i have been working with the local child support office trying to track him down. he currently lives with the babysitter with her kids playing daddy of the year to them, while not talking to his own children in over 3 years. I support my children fully. Yes I think that he should be thrown in jail maybe just maybe it will smarten him up and start paying for his children.they need him and he refuses to work and take care of them. KARMA is a bitch and it will come back and bite him in the bum

If he is disabled and waiting on disability. They can't say he is willingly not paying his support and have to wait for the outcome of the disability case probably continue to another date

No they won't go to jail. My kids dead beat dad never would pay his child support. He is a looser and so are the child support enforcers. He now gets food stamps and works for cash and lives with a dumbass. But needless to say the piece of shit he is, he don't ever pay his child support and the system don't care. So all this will come back to him. I just can't wait till the day that happens. In reality though, I don't need his money. Doing just fine raising his kids without him or his help. Thanks child support for doing nothing to him for the last 10 years....
So us don't need the money, just greed, maybe the karma will bite you for being a pig.

if the non custodial parent refuses to pay child support the government should sell their organs

you women who have kids and the father Won't pay child support should pay more attention to the man's character instead of his looks before you go to bed with him.( use your head)

This is a stupid ??? of course a man/woman if willfully not paying CS will go to jail. Now, how that helps the children? Mom/Dad's in jail, no income & now has a record to make it harder for them to get a job. Kind of STUPID logic. Oh well, ladies go for it. You work while we sit in jail playing cards, having our meals brought to us & sleeping all we want. Oh, by the way, your tax dollars pay to keep us fed while in jail. SMART.
that's fine, as long as you're in jail for abondoning your family and neglecting your obligation, i'm happier you being in jail. that's correct, we pay taxes to put people where they belonng.:-)
