Abuse by Man Hating Judges

by Felicia
(Kentucky )

My husband has two children from a previous relationship, and we now have one on the way. From day one the judge assigned to his case has completely abused the power they have, giving his ex the fuel she needs to push and push for me. She lives with her father, and recieves 545 a month for the boys. When the child support order was first made, my husband was forced to pay a ridiculous amount of back support because SHE had chose to wait to file. After the fact, my husband faithfully paid his support weekly without falling behind. Then shortly after we were married, he got an order in the mail saying the child support would be taken from his work wages by his employer and sent in by him. At first, we were relieved. It was one less thing we needed to worry about paying ourselves every week.

Then, he started getting calls from his ex saying that she wasn't getting the payments and he was still responsible for making them. Now, we know that it gets taken out every week because he gets paid salary, BUT his boss does not give him pay stubs so we have no proof of this. His ex is now taking him back to court for contempt of court, after they took 3,000 dollars out of our taxes this year for what his boss isn't paying. So, he has paid that 3,000 dollars twice now because of his boss.

Do you think that the judge cares about any of this? No. It still falls back on my husband and he is the one facing jail time for no fault of his own. They don't go after the boss who is state ordered to pay it, they go after the father who works 50 hours a week to take care of his kids. I fully agree that he should be paying and that it is his responsibility, but he is being completely taken advantage of. He had planned to have the court order changed this year so that he would get "shared parenting" instead of just visitation and now he just looks like a dead beat dad, so he is never going to get equal time with his kids. All while their mother doesn't work and isn't financially responsible for those boys at all. The system is a sad one, that doesn't give rights to the fathers who actually do deserve it.

Jurisdiction
by: Anonymous

To be honest it doesn't matter what state you live it only matters what state the mother or custodial parent lives. If you move to Timbuktu and she still lives in Texas you are still under Texas child support jurisdiction.

Don't move here.

Don't move to Wisconsin!! The judicial system here just plain hates men, there are 2 standards one for the male and one for the female. In this state a divorced man paying support may as well ask for the death penalty, because working with some of the child support people is the equivalent. However is does depend on what county you are in also. There is no consistency, the caseworker assigned to this case has a chip on her shoulder the size of Mt. Rushmore and the enforcement office is just a plain jerk. They dont listen to what you have to say, JUST PAY UP is all they care about. It is sad, unfortunately in most of these cases the wrong parent has custody.

Assinine laws

In NY state the calculation is 17% of combined parental gross income. My husband pays $14729 in child support each year or $283.26 each week for his 7 year old son. That is, in New York State, only 73% of what they claim he and his ex would spend on their son had they stayed married. Her 27% "contribution" is what they claim she pays out of pocket above and beyond what my husband pays or $5447.90 annually. Too bad my SS is always in clothes that are too small, socks with holes, dirty and smelly. But, it must be nice for her that she and her husband get to buy new cars every two years. Oh, and that newly remodeled kitchen, yup we paid for that too! The worst part is that we have a two year old daughter and a little boy on the way and the last time the ex went for an increase my husband mentioned this to the judge and was told that "in New York State first families come first, I won't take your current family into consideration at all." Needless to say the support went up $400 each month that day....lucky us....only 14 more years...shoot me now! We also have vistation 2 days every week and every other weekend from friday until monday morning then in the summers every other week from 7 pm sunday until 7pm the next sunday then alternate holidays and school breaks. NY doesn't even take into consideration how much time we have him and have to provide for him full time. We have to pay even on the weeks when we have him!!

Good judges
by: Anonymous

Good fair and caring judges are like unicorns, they are MYTHICAL CREATURES. After trying to make payment arrangements with child support I was told the offer was not enough, then they took me to court. Different counties are different and the county I live is run by a bunch of skunks who are more worried about their enforcement rates than the human beings behind the payments. They enforce certain cases and let others go. The only people who think they have fair enforcement is them and maybe the judges. And if your enforcement officer says I am only doing my job you might live in the same county I do. I have seen some people go through some pretty bad things regarding child support and the most honest people get screwed the most.

The judge
by: Anonymous

If you really do think the judge is not doing his job then you can file for a different judge siting prejudice.

If he refuses then file a complaint with ky states judicial commitee. Write down everything that has gone on in his court during your case, do not lie or embelish the fact.

They will investigate and he wont be able to judge your cases due to conflict of interest.
