I look at these posting, I have been in front of the judge myself, however i may have felt like i got screwed the judge simply follows what the legislature has determined what is basically saying the going rate for children to raise in NY, whether its fair or not is a matter for the NY state legislature not the courts they simply ensure the law is being applied. Sorry folks as much as I hate the system i pay my support and when i have a change that is not my doing in jobs and hours i go back each time and ask for an adjustment. Good luck and just follow the procedure and you wont have any problems..
Go back and read post #29. Is that what the NYS Legislature requires the judge to do? I don't think so!!!!

Ok since your too dense too understand what I said I'm going to take you by the hand and walk you through this again. I must reiterate, READ post #29 again. AT NO TIME did I complain about having to pay child support. Not once! Could you please show me where I said that? That is my responsibility and I have met that responsibility and then some. All I said was that I should not have had to sit through her condecending remarks directed toward me. That is very unprofessional and has no place in the courts. Getting it yet?6103

Sharon is married to a man and has been for years. IT'S HER JOB TO MAKE PEOPLE PAY THEIR CHILD SUPPORT...THAT IS WHAT SHE GETS PAID TO DO! Thanks Sharon for keeping some of these kids off the welfare system for us tax payers to take care of! If you don't want to take care of kids be responsible and use birth control...DUH!
You Know it's funny that you got a problem with a person on welfare who is not doing anything to hurt you but you don't seem to have a problem with the GOVERNMENT (A TOTAL FICTION)JUST TAKING YOUR MONEY WITHOUT EVEN ASKING YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE. LAST TIME I CHECKED THAT'S ROBBERY. NOT TO MENTION THESE CORRUPT POLITICIANS ARE BEING PAID BY YOUR TAX DOLLARS THE SAME AS A WELFARE VICTIM ONLY DIFFERENCE THERE NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR YOUR BENEFIT. WHY DON'T YOU TRY TELLING THEM TO STOP TAKING YOUR MONEY AND SEE IF THEY LISTEN TO YOU. IT'S EASY TO BLAME THE WELFARE VICTIM, BUT THERE NOT THE ONES TAKING YOUR MONEY BY FORCE AND USING IT TO BUY WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION & NOT FOR YOUR BENEFIT. just something to think about.

I have a child with a man who struggles with his own finances after our break up so I took the conscious decision to not you drag him into court. I work a full time job and do over time.when it was time forour son to go to college I took sole responsibility for that too.I love my son and feel if his dad can't I will. I see so many ppl doing this whole court thing to be mean to each other.I refuse to lower myself to put someone in front of this cold hearted man hater!!!

Well I'm a single mom who went back to college and received my bachelors degree so I could obtain a better job. Thinking this would help me be able to take better care of my children. When I went in front of Judge Lumb it was determined that my percentage of the child's financial needs increased because I made more money than my daughters father. She then lowered his child support to almost nothing! I told her in court "so basically because I chose to do better for myself and daughter, I'm being penalized". Her response was " since you make more money, your percentage of responsibility increased". So like I said, because I chose to do better and he chose to do nothing, I get screwed! Where is the man eater judge everyone keeps talking about???

She did same to me,she even told ME to get 2nd job.
I raised my 3 children by myself, worked full time. While he worked under table because he didnt want to pay child support so he was ordered the min 25.00 a mo for 3 kids, to this day I didnt even recieve that and there married and out on there own. What the best part is after our youngest moved out ..guess what 2 weeks later he had a full time job on the record and still there 6 yrs later....but couldnt work for 25 yrs before

why the F is Sharon Lumb STILL on the bench? She has been falling asleep during every proceeding snapping out of her slumber to snap at whoever meets her eye when she wakes up.. this is so surreal that a woman in charge of making decisions for familes for over 20 yrs ..has narcalepsie or something that makes her the most stupid choice for the job

Sorry Sharon Lumb favors woman because she allows her personal bias to to cloud her judgement. I have seen her deny fathers there due process rights protected under the 14th Amendment sorry even in child support hearing fathers are entitled to a lawyer which she never ask them if they want a lawyer but she will ask a female if the want a lawyer sorry equal rights apply to all. I have even heard that she shuts off the recorder for she can verbal abuse men. Sorry she has a little bit to much control and she should not be able to stop recording a court session to male bash. Her husband probably lacks testicles and is unhappily married to her afraid to leave her because she will use her status as a judge to make his life a living hell.

I guess you people forget she is a elected official so do yourself a favor register to vote.Vote her out of position. Another thing report her for misconduct and not giving people their due process as granted under the 14th Amendment. The phrase all good people need to due to let evil prevail is to do nothing at all. Vote because I will be at your side to vote her out of office.

I have been in front of Sharon Lumb. Imagine this, I have shared placement of my son, which means 50/50 shared custody. I also have the right of first refusal in my custody order, and since I am avaialable more that the mother, I spend way more than 50% of the time with my son. I also take him to his doctor appointments, and take him places on hollidays, and do everything in my power for my son. I even on ocassion watch the mother's other child when her babysitter is not available. However, Sharon Lumb and NY State, feel that is appropriate for me to continue paying 17% ($850.00) a month for one child, even though I actually have him in my care much more than the mother does. I have no problem paying support, and I agree with the concept. However, when the child is either in a 50/50 arrangement, or more than 50/50, this amount needs to be either adjusted or stopped. I would always support my child even if there was no order. Some mothers in this state use this as Mommy support, and it is not right. I, like the other person posting, can hardly afford my bills. It is a real challenge to put food on the table for my child. I think something needs to be done to change these unfair laws.
I have to agree

Man I could not agree more, the system is screwed up i am in the same boat, and pay for everything else for my kid because my ex and her hubby dont pay for anything and my kids seem to be spending more and more time with me which is great but they need to adjust the system. I wish there was more we could all do to get a change but hiring a lawyer and going to family court with documentations does not work but down that road and got the shaft.
