If the domestic relations agency didn't rob and penalize men, this person may have never tried the scheme.

Men are required to pay far more than what's necessary to support a child. The laws ultimately hurt children...and often turn fathers against their own children.

I disagree with you, This man went out of wedlock and fathered a child that used to be called adultry.He fathered this child willingly .Then to try to enlist the help of a friend get him caught up in his situation.We fathers , I feel that if you helped bring that child into the would you must expect to take care of your responsabilty

If you're big enough and man enough to lay and play then you should be big enough and man enough to PAY!

Afterall, you get the enjoyment and pleasure out of it or you wouldn't do it, therefore, take care of your RESPONSIBILITY - AKA - Offspring - AKA- Child(ren).

The LAWS do NOT hurt the child(ren) and if the fathers turn against their child(ren), that is THEIR problem and the results lie upon them. It only leads up to prove later on in the child(ren)'s life just what kind of DEADBEAT their father really is/was.

The men know the implications when they whip out their little weenies therefore there is no defense. The woman objecting in the post is probably married to some loser with six kids by other women.

Lisa:
TAKE NOTE: It is not the domestic relations agency that "rob" men or women from paying support - it is the state guidelines that need to be followed. If you have complaints about this I might suggest to contact your State Representative, Senator or Congressman.

You do the crime, you do the time. The money for your kids is not enough no matter what you think. AND they don't have you around(in your case col. eh). Kids like their father around just to have somebody yell at them and say, why did you do that? And 'lisa' are you a father that did not want to pay?

The laws don't hurt the children.... The parents do.

I would like to know what ever gender you are how could one get away without being responsible. I have been fighting for 30 years for what i now owe something to my grandchildren. For someone with a mind to have someone else to take the test is unforgivable, can't even imagine trying to think of something so cruel. No man nor woman should be able to get away with the responsibilty of bearing a child.
