At witts end with the most un caring system in the usa

by GLENN PALUMBO
(PORT RICHEY FL.)

I am a father to a 4 year old boy who i love dearly. I have just benn divorced 10 mounths now and from the court i was orderd to pay 1/3 of my mounthly income witch came to around `$1200 a mounth it was comming stright from my pay check witch was great but on the third pay deduction i was let go due to company downsizing (layed off)) my unimployment does;t cover the amount i am orderd to pay by the court so i was told to call the child enforsment office and explan. So i went in person witch was a 1300 mile ride in my car when i expland to the woman that i was layed off NOT MY PROBLEM SHE BLERTED OUT and that i was on unemployment NOT MY PROBLEM again she blerted out . That my unemployment wouldent cover the amount each mounth NOT MY PROBLEM ONCE MORE SHE BLERTED OUT so i asked how i was suppose to pay this ammount NOT MY PROBLEM she said to me again . all she did tell me is i was in the reers $1200.00 and my next payment is on the 1st of the new year $1200.00 i have been making 500.00 dollar payments amonth since the divorce, or court orderd to pay by incom deductsion order of the 1200.

Now my ex said if i ask for motion to reduce the monthly ammount she wiil sue me from when day the child was born including all hosptil bills . So now even that i am trying to make the best of a bad situation i get a letter from the child support enforsment office saying my driver lic and regestration have been pulled untill all is payed up in full. Now how am i suppose to look for work or goto my visitation every other weekend cause if i miss visitation she will have me in court for failing to comply with the visitation order and i will loose all my rights for seeing my son, its so crul how they treat the husband if someone knows how i can get this fixed or baybe even get my lic. back so i dont loose my visitation i would sure be so greatfull.

Are you a good dad because you send money or because you care about your kids?
by: Anonymous

I am married to a wonderful dad of 2 girls. His ex-wife will not work, she just uses other men.
She has drug my husband to court on several occassions making him pay more money. It had gotten to the point they were taking 1/2 of his income, so he stopped paying when he got custody of his oldest daughter (the mother could not "handle" her). Now that the girls are grown she is taking him back to court for "back support"....come on, he had one daughter and she had the other!! The courts I'm sure will make him pay. Not to mention she is now telling the girls he is a dead beat dad because he owes "them" money.

behind on child support
by: Anonymous

I am sorry to hear that your ex seems to be so uncaring but I will tell you that my ex is making no attempt to keep up with any type of payments and he is 10,000.00 behind in child support he has had his drivers license revoked and he just goes in and signs an agreement to make a payment does not even make a payment and he gets his drivers license back. he has not seen his daughter in over 8 years and I can do nothing. I am sorry to hear that at least you are trying and I would help you out in any way even though I am on the other side. I wish she would take it into consideration that you are trying she is getting more than I have ever gotten. GOOD LUCK .. go in and make a deal with the child support office.

your situation isn't uncommon which is why I'm continuing to add comments this system is robbing willing and hardworking fathers out of their childrens life and with no sympathy other than pay up well without a job without transportation without the money to hire a lawyer to fight an unjust decision made by a third party what are we supposed to do ?
