allllllllllllllll of u people say these guys r dead beat dads don't even have a clue of how the men get screwed by:1-they don't get ANY kind of custody of his children,2-then the state of fl. takes all of the mens money and expects us(NOT THE MOMMY)to pay for everything!!!! it is BS!!!!!!!! why not have BOTH parents pay the child support? I know the women want to do nothing except collect the money and deal it out like they see fit,sounds like our government doesn't it? You always hear the dr.'s say children need BOTH parents,except when the court gets a hold of it,they screw the father,the kids and the mother!!!! Why not have some reform on this? oh yea the moms would be soooooooooooo outraged that they would have to SHARE RESPONSIBILITY to raise the kids and have to give up control!!!!!!If i was the father i would just sit in jail and tell the court make me pay while i sit here in your jail!!!! they can't!!!! then where that mother be? she wants alllllll the money now because she is unemployed,not for her daughter,because she is 18 and considered an adult!!!!! so don't tell me this "mother" needs the money for her children!!! she probably has unemployment benefits coming in,so it sounds like to me she needs to do what fathers alllllllll across the have been doing;make a budget and stick to it,also stop the crying all of you "moms",there is a recession going on,or hadn't you noticed?oh yea too busy going out and spending ALLLLLLLLL the child support money on your nails at the salon right?

The State of Florida sucks when it comes to collecting child support. Plain and simple. My child's father has been arrested numerous times, gone before the judge, with the judge knowing he's never paid a dime. They let him go everytime. My suggestion is to put ankle bracelets on these dopes and when they don't pay when they are supposed to, either track them and demand payment or send them to jail, or ZAP them. Send a few volts of electricity. Maybe it will make them go limp where it counts and they can't reproduce. Men who owe child support shouldn't be allowed to be out on the streets doing drugs, drinking and enjoying freedom. If they can't pay, send them to the fudge factory. Let 'em get packed! They deserve it.

It is unfortunate, but with the economy tanking it is going to be impossible to collect from many of these parents.
Blacks have a good system. Run around knocking up as many women as you can and never admitting they are the father, so the tax payers [including these deadbeat dads] can foot the bill for them.
It looks to me like this problem goes way beyond race you racist sexist dolt. DNA proves who the father is so men can lie but the results are final. If non-custodial fathers/mothers stepped up to their responsibilities, there would be no need for a state child support collection system. It is really quite simple, take care of your kids.

How do you expect them to pay if they are constantly getting arrested and jailed?

Perhaps the state should open a daycare center and staff it with deadbeat parents who can't find work, and use the money they would have earned to pay the back child support.

Two problems solved, and no one needed to be boofed or electrocuted.

If one looks at the percentages it is black men causing most of these problems.

You would think that a man with a record would serve as a red flag that he won't be a great father.

I owe a ton of back child support...Here's why. My ex-wife who lives and works in the world of "Born Again Christians" is a sociopathic manipulator...We were married with two young kids...A boy and a girl, born less than a year apart. She suffered from post partum depression, wouldn't leave the house, go to church, dinner or anything. One day I came home and she was in the hot tub, with our neighbor, a shapely young woman...They were...bobbing for apples you might say. Turns out, she had wrestled with lesbian tendancies since she was 11 yrs old, and I suspect she was molested by her Father. Shortly after this event, there was a deputy at the door with divorce papers. I asked her, "what about the kids?" her reply was, "they're yours take them"...Her parents hooked her up with a sleazy divorce attorney, who taught her how to manipulate the system against me. After the divorce, I would show up to pick up the kids, with court order in hand, and she would say "F.You, you can't have them"...Should would say "call the cops", yet the police would do nothing...To go back to ocurt, takes lawyers, and lawyers don't work for free. I took her back to court,(spent $5,000.00) and the next time I went to get my kids, it was "F.You, you can't have them...Now,, at this time, I was working for a large company, paying child support, and I had health insurance for the kids...She would take the kids to doctors, give them my name instead of the health insurance cards, and the next time I would try to buy a car , I would find out that there were all kinds of overdue dodctors bills I had no knowledge of...Now keep in mind, this woman is living and working as an elementary school teacher, in the Christian School community... con'td

What I find total bullsh#t in florida is a woman can go out and get pregnant and name any man she wants to be the father, and for some reason that man doesn't show up in court. A default judgement is entered, and that man has to pay money out of his pocket for a lawyer, to fight the dna issue. I think in these cases, a dna test should be court order and if the child is the named male's child he should pay if not then the mother should pay for the test.

You'll never see the money ,my ex owes over 46,000.00 and the state wont do a damn thing.My son is 30 and I have never gotten a dime from his dad.He is now pursuing the matter to get the money for himself as once he turned 18 I was no longer aloud to go after him for child support.I had tried everything from the State to those that say they can get you the money.They are a joke also.
So hopefully by the time my son retires he will have his child support lol

Please don't generalize all men! I have a 14 year old son who now lives with me. I paid child support every month and bought all of his school clothing and paid for his health ins. Not to mention I paid an extra $100.00 a month just because I thought that what the court ordered me to pay was not enough. There are MEN out there who do the right thing. The people you speak of are little boys with a sperm count.

I also believe that it is so stupid to put someone in jail for child support, if you put them in jail they cant pay and the state has to take care of them while they are in there, I also believe that it is stupid to suspend their drivers licence, because now you are reducing their ability for transportation to work to make money to survive and/or pay the support. I think in alot of cases, not all, women use child support as a form of revenge.

Better to err on the side of caution than to be broke and not be able to feed your kids.

Women teach your daughters to be self sufficient and educated. This man who speaks here is only one in a million.

This woman,(we'll call her Leisa), used the kids as weapons to provide satisfaction to issues driven by her deep seated mental problems...

If you've ever sat and waited for over an hour to pick your kids up at the time the court said was your time, to have the kids not show, you know heartbreak...

If you've ever sent your kids birthday or christmas presents, to learn that they had been thrown in the trash and the kids never got them, you know heartache.

Yeah, you can take her back into court,but here the hitch: Fathers don't get free legal representation when mothers don't hand over the kids at the court ordered time, yet stop paying child support, and the mothers get free legal representation from the Department of Revenue. How much time and money should Fathers be expected to spend, when the mother can just stand at the door and say "F You, go ahead call the cops", or not answer the door or phone. why aren't the Mothers subjected to jail time, humiliation, and all of the trimmings as the dads are when they disobey a court order? why aren't the mothers who use the kids as pawns subjected to suspended drivers licenses?

My ex-wife remarried, and the guy she married is a Broward Sheriff's Deputy...This punk, would station a car outside of my office, and when I left the office, detectives would come in under the guise that they were "investigating me"...Now mind you, that there was nothing to investigate, and they wouldn't come in while I was there, but can you imagine the impact it has on your job when something like this happens? Ever try calling BSO to file a complaint??? It's pure B.S., these guys do what they want...All the while mind you, she is at a private christian school playing the role of "Little miss perfect christian school teacher" No one knows the darkeness in her mind or the eleaborate methods she would go to, or make others go to, to screw with my life and make it impossible for me to see my kids...

My daughter will graduate from high school this year, I'd like to send her a gift, but don't know if she'd get it. I've driven without a license so long, it doesn't really matter anymore...My son will graduate from high school next year. I haven't seen a picture of him in a long time...

My point is this: If child support isn't being paid, there is often more to it than just some guy being irresponsible...When your freakin hearet is being ripped out by a ruthless manipulator, oyu know oyur kids are being torn, and the system doesn't effect a solution regardless of how much money you spend, you simply stop paying support...The kids have never gone without, her wealthy parents have given her much money...Her dad, I'm sure does it to keep his little "secret" safe...But there is more to it....I hope that soon, my kids will find me, and learn the truth about (Leisa) and all of the htings she's done in the name of "God"...
