Aliens who come to this country and get a GREEN CARD should be required to work and support their children. If illegal immigrants can get work in the U.S. then green card aliens can work and pay their child support. The U.S. government should help state child support agencies to collect child support similar to the way they are requiring child support payments to be made before a person can get a visa to travel abroad. Take the green card.

I see what you mean. If the Federal government is able to give Aliens a green Card then the government should be able to track down those who don't pay Child Support. A group of us are on this computer discussing this.

People who don't support their children should not be protected by the government which is what the government does when it Ignores DEADBEATS by not using the paper trail of alien visas and Green Card data to track them down.

Did you know that a U.S. citizen can have their passport seized if they are severely delinquent in paying child support? But... "resident aliens" who retain their citizenship in the country of their birth cannot be penalized in the same way. They can travel all they like without any sanctions. They may even take their children abroad with them even though they do not pay the child support to feed and clothe them.
Something is seriously wrong with that. Resident Alien Deadbeat dads should lose their green cards and be deported if they will not support the children they have fathered.

Custodial parents in every state are having a problem getting their child support payments. I recently read a post from Hawaii with a woman seeking to get help to locate a deadbeat dad.
Our government complains about having to budget money for mothers who are poor, and I see taking the green card from deadbeats would help.
You make a good point about the inequity of treatment towards U.S. citizens. RESIDENT ALIEN DEADBEAT DADS SHOULD LOSE THEIR GREEN CARDS AND BE DEPORTED IF THEY WILL NOT SUPPORT THE CHILDREN THEY HAVE FATHERED--DITTO. There is already a clear paper trail on these deadbeats so the government needs to require a reporting of child support payments as a requirement for maintaining resident alien status. Aliens can't just come over here, make babies, reap the benefits of living in America, then run off like cowards and not support their children.

The government does needs to get more involved. Children would get their money if the government stepped in and took the green cards of the deadbeat dads. They're taking visas. It's only fair.

Are there any congress persons listening? Pass a law to reqire legal aliens who are deadbeats to bring child suppport payments up to date or leave the country. It's shameful and should be illegal to come to this land of plenty and leave the children you fathered wanting.

My grandchildren's father lives in Italy. He does not pay child support for his 2 children who live in Virginia, but travels extensively and leisurely all over the world ,including infrequent stops in VA. He's on the dead-beat dad list. I am helping to support the children. How can he travel in and out of the US and be on the dead-beat dad list. Does anyone know the avenue to bring this issue to the probper officials?

It's crazy that a deadbeat parent can move freely to and fro and not be caught. I have read that visas can be confiscated unless the deadbeat parent gets current in child support. Maybe the Federal Information Center at 1-800-333-4636 can direct you.

I am sorry but I don't have an answer for this one. I am looking for the same answer to my question. My child's father is delinquent and not a citizen of the US. They say that they have started passpport proceedings (Division of Child Support) yet it does not matter in this case. He is not a citizen and has a Green Card. He has a passport from another county. I am so angry that they keep repeating the same thing - but started passport proceedings. It does not apply in this case.
The father lives here yet is not paying! What can I do to take legal action and throw him out of this country?

I find it disgusting that a person can win the lottery to live in the USA, while avoiding child support payments abroad. Holding a U.S. green card is not a right but a privilege and those who are lucky enough to get them should be held accountable for their responsibilities here as well as their own country. Their cards should be revoked!

Leaves home April 24 2008, ordered to pay 1760 child support June 1st 2008, as of July 20th no payment made? How does that NAVY take so long?
Gave his mother the WIC for his children, WIC fraud
wih intensions of leaving the children without food to make him look like god. He derpives his children of much needed support with the intensions of making his ex look bad for no food for the chilren when he granted the childrens food for his resident mom wo is already getting 3 WIC food supplies.

Do you know that over $772 BILLION are owed to America's children? This site is dedicated to all the parents who are owed support (child support & spousal). If you are one of them or if you were successful in getting a "deadbeat" to pay you what he/she owed you, we want to hear about it.

I have a 12 year old daughter by my ex-husband who has been in this country for 28 years and still has not become a US citizen...why would he...the only thing they can't do is vote. He has been being chaced for child support since she was 6 months old and has been documented 3 times intentionally quiting his job to evade child support. He qualified for the Dead Beat dad act, but when I contacted the FBI thye informed me that they don't actually prosecute them unles the debt is $50,000 or greater...what good id that law? Nothing is being done to assit my daughter and me. I've contacted the Govoners office and child support on a weekly basis, but I still have ZERO to show for it...it's a big joke!!!!! All it would take is immigration to show up on his doorstep(they know where he lives)and detain him and tell him that if he doesn't comply within 60 days with child support than he will be deported out of MY country! I think they would all start paying then don't you?

This makes me Crazy! As soon as my ex had his resident papers in the mail he announced that he had a P.O. Box and was leaving me and the baby. I wasn't too disappointed since he didn't provide a single penny (never could get ANYTHING going) during the entire marriage. He also announced that he would be getting half my retirement, the house, my daughter and alimony. Thankfully he made some stupid mistakes and the judge saw through his act. It's been 3 1/2 years and we've seen six hundred dollars total from him. He's traveled to Colombia 2-4 times and does all his work under the table. I've been told by recovery services to give up. Somehow he managed to buy two houses in 2006 and then transfer the names of the deeds on the homes even though the mortages are still in his name. It's amazing to me that someone who has never had a job or earned over $4,000 a year can buy two homes. BELIEVE ME THERE ARE NO TYPO'S ON THE NUMBERS ENTERED! Thankfully I was never stupid enought to put his name on my house, cars or bank accounts though I likely would have in another year. Now my daughter and I are on every form of welfare and have lost our cars, house etc. If he had even paid a fraction of things our lives would have been totally different. He has also used the legal system to harass me with fake charges for years...he is a monster and he will teach all of his illegal alien friends how to pull of the same con until we stop them. All of them teach each other the tricks of the trade in beating the system and have no place here. He has spent less than 3 weeks in 3 1/2 years with my daughter and he only saw her because he was ordered to. When he saw her she came back swearing and acting out sexually (not appropriate for a 2 and 3 year old). I've been told by recovery services that "We can't make them work." I say you can...put an ankle monitor on them or lock them in a warehouse doing assembly type work until they get their debts paid. I am sorry to say that the taxpayer (not my deadbeat ex) has been paying the bill THOUSANDS and that it will continue for some time while he continues to fiddle around with selling car parts on ebay and traveling back and forth to Colombia!
