I'm not sure what the problem is, but it seems to me that the Child Support Division has no interest in helping me with my case. I have had an open case for about 8 months and have yet to receive anything from my daughter's father (the sperm donor). Nor have I received any correspondence from Child Support-oh wait!--one letter saying they were taking over the case. Do some cases get swept under the rug??? Well, I need help and can't afford an attorney. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there someone I can contact about my case being neglected?

ihave been trying to get child suport for the past year and every time i think i am getting close it seems like they dont care. my childrens father had his boss lie to the state and i have it on tape and they are still saying there is nothing they can do! there has got to be! he is getting off so easy. that makes me upset. i know they can do something but they wont. if i find a way i will let every single parent know about it.

One problem with support enforcement is the fact that too many custodial parents expect support enforcement to do everything except take their children to school.

A lack of education may be part of the problem. An educated person will make demands on support enforcement and follow through with their demands by staying in touch with support enforcement to make sure they are doing their jobs as well as provide help with any and all information for support enforcement that is needed.

And if the custodial parent is on welfare and not working to support their children, it's exceedingly hard to support such a parent in their pursuit of financial support from the non custodial parent. It's a moral issue. And moral issues are in making of emotional decisions.

However, there are dead beat dads and dead beat moms. Based on the fact that more and more fathers are going after custody of their children and winning, their are more dead beat moms in comparison.

What is pitiful is the fact that the fathers who are custodial parents don't usually go on welfare. They work to support their children and expect child support from the dead beat moms.

On the other hand, the moms who are custodial parents usually go on welfare and don't help to support their custodial children.

If I worked for support enforcement, I would have a hard time considering a welfare mom important enough to waste my time in going after the non custodial father.

After all, every child has a mom and a dad. Both parents should work and support their children, not just the dad and all the working citizens of the states.

I have no sympathy for a mom who rather than work, collects welfare to support her children.

Are you serious? HAVE YOU RAISED KIDS YOURSELF? No, I dont mean your mom or family member keeping them when you have to work... I mean raised human beings responsibly alone. Are you saying the women left shattered are also supposed to make sure LAW ENFORCEMENT IS DOING THIER JOBS TOO?!?!? Absurd. You have no idea what it takes to raise humans alone PLUS without any monetary assistance. I doubt any Mother has time to freakin check-up on if her cops and such are DOING THIER JOBS!!!!!

to put it another way... who gets blamed when the child does something wrong? I think the responsibility rests on "his momma" or "home trainin".... How is a child supposed to get that when mommas at work from 7am till 6pm working for maybe $10 an hour to pay the housenote and buy clothing and food and EVERYTHING ELSE?!?!? While sperm donor comes home, puts his feet up and spends his money on beer and good times leaving his own FLESH and BLOOD to rot.. You tell me how its supposed to go.. i dunno

Go back to school so you can teach in the public schools. The work hours coincide with children's school hours.

I haven't missed a day of child support in the past 19 years. DHS takes it out of my check. So whats the big fuss about DHS not taking it out of the non-custodial parent's check? All the custodial parent has to do is fill out some forms at DHS. Then its done.
If you can't put forth that little effort, then swap rolls with the non-custodial parent....

Im just sayin, you've probably been at the same Corporate job for 19 years and sounds like you'd do the right thing by your children by calling to let DHS know if you changed jobs or moved. That is GREAT! This post, however is about the men who DO NOT stay at one job or place, dont care about visitation and are on the run a lot. DHS ideally SHOULD be more like a detective agency for the good of America's youth in this day.

why do men get away with paying child support? I know this guy who works and makes a lot of money, yet he only pays $150.00 per month. That's a pair of shoes for him. That's nothing compares to what he makes, yet when his reveiw comes up, he always says that he doesn't have a job, or he been cutting grass. They must believe him because he brags about her not getting anymore than that. It's funny to him. I hope someday he will be lock up for child support and not paying the gov. for his business that he's doing illegial

Well, I must be the one case they do go after. After having some problems with employment when I was younger I found myself $5809 in arrears. Needless to say once child support enforcement got ahold if it, my employer had a withholding order for support and almost $300 a month for arrears. I have no issue paying what I owe, but now that arrears are laid off where's the withholding order to drop the arrears? No where to be found and of course they won't return your phone call! So, now I'm on Month 4 of paying arrears that isn't even owed. Will I get it back, doubt it. So, I guess for every 100 non custodial parents they don't go after they make it up on the one they do!(me)

what a bunch of excuses and rationalizations. I went back to school and earned a doctorate while a single mom - yes I did get financial aid and now owe a ton in stufent loans but I can pay for them because I have a REAL JOB. Also, I was fortunante in that my ex-husband paid for childcare (although he was late so often that I ended up having to get him garnished), but I had other single mom friends in my program that got childcare paid for through the certificate program. And Medicaid will pay for your kids health insurance while you are in school. SO the only thing stopping you is MOTIVATION!

Are you insane?

Was the 'sperm donor' comment a joke/insult to your ex or are you serious?

You do of course realize in some states sperm banks DO NOT log the identities of their customers.

I don't know what law is in this state but I think donors to sperm banks are legally off the hook for child support.

If this was a case where a friend of yours provided his material for the pregnancy.....well, go find an attorney.

You may not have a case.

If it's a deadbeat ex you better hope they have a job. In this economy, many don't, and you may be screwed. If they do have a job I'm kind of shocked because normally the child support people go after them hard.

If it was a sperm donor they can challenge your paternity claim in court. If it's not the father, he doesn't owe you anything. Even if it is, if you used a sperm bank I don't think the father has any legal liability for the child he doesn't know about.

If you did have a child out of wedlock, you're an idiot, to be blunt.

You brought your misfortune on yourself.

im a father and i pay child support. i have now problem paying it. it helps my child get new clothes and what not. i keep in touch with his mother and we have a good relationship. i chose to pay child support so he can receive certain benefits that require one parent to pay. but at the same time its both parents responsibility to be able to pay for a child. if you cant support the child why didnt u bring your lazy asses down to the health dept for some free protection or why was birth control not used. im for licensed birth wrights. if you cant take care of yourself why bring another into the world. come one 6 kids ages 3,4,5,7,8,10. stop fucking and get and education and a job. this page is like Fathers day in the hood. SAD!!!! get a clue.
